After 38 years, National Guard trumpeter takes 'farewell tour'

By ANDY KIRKALDY
VERGENNES — Jim Lanpher’s 38-year career with the Vermont National Guard’s 40th Army Band ends on Aug. 10 because he will then reach the mandatory retirement age of 60.

The Vergennes resident still remembers 49 years ago when he decided to start playing the trumpet. He was in school in his native Maine when he made the choice.

Music company reps displayed their goods. Among them were trumpets, the same instrument Lanpher’s father played in a U.S. Army career that began in World War II.

Snapshots: Joseph Steventon

By CHELSEY PLETTS
The beach was dark. Naval guns had cleared enemy resistance the night before. The shoreline stood deserted — except for Joseph Steventon and his team.

After a rough 35-hour journey from Milne Bay to a beachhead in Hollandia, Dutch New Guinea, Steventon and his men were dropped in enemy territory unescorted. Steventon was Executive and Technical Officer with the 989th Signal Service Company responsible for establishing communication lines between American forces.

He was only 25 years old.
