Upper St. Clair High School, which is located in Pennsylvania, will be having a program to honor veterans on November 9, 2017. The program will feature Todd McIntrye and Sean McCrae. Sean is a disabled veteran who retired in 2011 after spending 24 years in service. He won more than 62 awards while he was in the military
Sean did not let his disabilities stop him from living a full life. He recently competed in the International Powerlifting League World Bench and Deadlift Championships.
Todd is also disabled. He worked in the nuclear propulsion program during his time in service. Not only is he a former veteran, but he also competed in several athletic competitions. He has competed in 77 triathlons and seven ironman competitions. He was forced to retire from the military in 2015 after suffering seven strokes.
The strokes left him paralyzed and unable to speak. Even though Todd is still recovering from the strokes, he was able to compete in a sprint distance triathlon in June 2017. The program will feature performances by the school’s marching band. The Marine Corps League will present the colors. Furthermore, all current and former veterans will be honored during the service.
Several people who work at the high school have served in the military. Peter Wray is the high school security officer. He has served in the United States Army Reserves.
