Did you know that Glenn Miller was a Major in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II? He was instrumental in the formation of the Army Air Corps Band which would become the U.S. Air Force and the USAF Band shortly after the war ended. Today the USAF Band has a reputation for Christmas flash mob performances in Washington, D.C. during the Christmas season. This performance in Union Station took place last year to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in the spirit of Glenn Miller.
