Jennifer McIntyre was recently highlighted in Stars and Stripes Newspaper for Military abroad for her volunteer service. She serves as a Tour Guide for all newcomers to Misawa Air Base in Misawa, Japan. Her duties include teaching newcomers about the area along with the basics of how to get by in a new culture.

American newcomers tooling around Misawa on a bus one recent Thursday are privy to information that might otherwise take years of living in Japan to figure out.

They learn that the local grocery store, Yokomachi, sells fruits and vegetables for 100 yen on Tuesdays, that the pink sushi house has the reputation for the best sushi, and if they get lost, follow signs to Aeon, a popular department store in Japan usually found in populated areas, near familiar landmarks.

"Please go explore. Don't be afraid to … park your car and just walk around," Jenni McIntyre encourages the group of military families and single servicemembers from her spot at the front of the bus.
