Gregory Otis Mullen COS sign now

Whereas, Gregory Otis Mullen has served the U.S. Peace Corps for three years;

Whereas, Gregory Otis Mullen is scheduled to complete Peace Corps service on December 17, 2005;

Whereas, Gregory Otis Mullen has had an accomplished record of service and has dutifully embodied the core goals of Peace Corps, as testified by his students and fellow Peace Corps Volunteers;

Whereas, Gregory Otis Mullen was unaware of the PC policy concerning marriage of a PCV to an HCN;

Whereas, Gregory Otis Mullen did not seek to deceive, undermine, or intentionally violate the policies of Peace Corps Ukraine;

Whereas, Peace Corps Administrative Officer Andrey Khomenko did not mention the PC policy regarding marriage when asked by Gregory Otis Mullen if anything needed to be done to change marital status with Peace Corps;

Whereas, according to the Peace Corps Handbook, the purpose of the policy regarding marriage is primarily to determine if the Volunteers marriage is consistent with continued effective service, yet Gregory will officially complete service in ten days and has already completed teaching at his institute;

Whereas, according to the Peace Corps Handbook, the purpose of the policy regarding marriage is NOT meant to interfere with the decision to marry, nor to pass judgment on the choice of spouse;

Whereas, Gregory Otis Mullen has complied with all U.S. Embassy and U.S. Department of Justice Immigration regulations regarding marriage to a non-citizen;

Whereas, we acknowledge that in not consulting with Peace Corps Ukraine Country Director Karl Beck, Gregory Otis Mullen has violated the Peace Corps policy regarding marriage;

Wheras, the language of the Peace Corps Ukraine policy on marriage states If you marry without the Country Directors approval, you may be administratively separated from Peace Corps, suggesting administrative separation is left to the discretion of the Peace Corps Country Director or Deputy Director;

Whereas, administrative separation or forced early termination of service constitutes excessive punishment for a Peace Corps Volunteer who has served Peace Corps Ukraine for three years and is a mere ten days from COS;

Whereas, as Peace Corps Volunteers, unjust treatment and excessive punishment of one volunteer concerns us all;

We, the undersigned, therefore, petition the administration of Peace Corps Ukraine to allow Gregory Otis Mullen to officially complete his Peace Corps service on December 17th, in good standing with Peace Corps.
