Glenn Miller

This selection is from the "Home Base" radio broadcast for the Treasury Department in 1943 that featured the song "Flying Home" by the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band. Jimmy Doolittle, Commanding General of the 8th Air Force, said "Next to letters from home, the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Band was the greatest morale builder we had in the European Theatre of Operations."
