“I am done quietly, but done,” McIntyre told the Veterans Wednesday morning. McIntyre has been volunteering for more than 40 years; first as a trumpet player in her home town, and then as the band director in South Dakota and finally in Windham.
“I appreciate the recognition from you,” said McIntyre. “I wish you the very best as this post develops. This is very thoughtful.” She has been performing with her band in Memorial Day parades for the last 32 years, she said.
The American Legion post honors both God and country. “That’s why we’re here and why we’re recognizing Betty,” said veteran Dave Tanguay.
