A longtime volunteer is hanging up her burgundy vest after more than 36 years of service at Brooke Army Medical Center.

Joy Moore began volunteering in 1985 and was one of a core group who started the BAMC Retiree Activities Group, affectionately known as BRAG. She is also the wife of retired Army Col.
