    US Army Major Glen Miller gave 800 performances with his Army Air Force Band in less than a year. He worked tirelessly to build morale and bring comfort through music. He even recording messages in German to reach out to those on the other side. His plane disappeared without a trace over the English Channel in 1944, and he was declared missing in action.
