Captain Glenn Miller, US Army Air Corp. Lead a 50-piece Army Air Force Band, which gave 800 performances in England in the summer of 1944. My favorite of the big bands!
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.

One of my new favorite heroes is Grandma Gatewood, the first and the oldest woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail (2,168 miles). She wore a pair of Keds sneakers and carried an army blanket, a raincoat and a plastic shower curtain/tarp. That was in 1955.
"Grandma Gatewood" ~ 1888-1973 Grandma Emma Gatewood was an Ohio farmers wife, mother of eleven children, grandmother of twenty three. She was the first woman to hike the 2,168-mile Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine solo. (The first is believed to have been Mildrid Ryder known as Peace Pilgrim) She did it in 1955 at the age of 67, wearing Keds sneakers and carrying an army blanket, a raincoat, a plastic shower curtain for shelter, a cup, first aid kit, raincoat, and one change of clothes, all of which she carried in a homemade bag slung over one shoulder. Her hiking diet consisted mainly of dried beef, cheese and nuts, supplemented by wild food she would find along the way.
Emma Gatewood, better known as “Grandma Gatewood,” mother of 11 children and grandmother of 23, was 67 when she first hiked the Trail in 1955. In 1957, she completed her second thru-hike at age 69. In 1964, she became the first person to complete the A.T. three time when she finished a section-hike. She was famous for wearing only “Keds” tennis shoes and carrying a small knapsack.
