Voice of San Diego Interview with Bob Montgomery, Director of the IRC in San Diego
After returning from service in the Vietnam War, Bob Montgomery felt he owed something to the hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese people who were displaced by the conflict.
He started working as a resettlement case worker at the San Diego office of the International Rescue Committee, a global refugee assistance agency that helps people fleeing violent conflict resettle into their new homes around the world.
More than 30 years later, he is director of the San Diego IRC, overseeing almost 60 employees and hundreds of volunteers from its office in City Heights, the center of San Diego's refugee community.
