A tradition that began over six decades ago in the
Army Air Forces with Major Glenn Miller and his music
is alive and well today in the United States Air Force
Band Airmen of Note. What started as one man's noble
pursuit grew into a musical phenomenon that lifted the
spirits of America's troops. Today's Airmen of Note
consist of eighteen dedicated musicians who are
honored to serve in our nation's Air Force, now in its
60th year as an independent service. And just as Major
Glenn Miller and his music did during World War II, we
sincerely hope this music serves the same purpose now:
to lift the spirits of those who serve.
