If you will allow me to add to the conversation. First off, thank you all
for the compliments regarding our orchestra! My name is Jarrod, I am the
Manager and lead male vocalist for the Tom Daugherty Orchestra. It truly
was a pleasure to visit Clarinda again and see the museum completed.
I have been studying Glenn since I was 9 years old, sometimes I think I
am him or one of his band members reincarnated...HaHaHa. You are absolutly
right, I have met more people than I can count that state there dad or
grandfather was a member of Glenns AAF orchestra. If it were truly the
case, the AAF band would have had about a thousand musicians! However there
were 2 smaller bands in the ETO that I know of that were comprised of
members of Glenns AAF band. One was "Swing Shift" directed by Sgt. Ray
McKinley, and the other was Strings with Wings led by George Ockner.
Thanks For letting me join the conversation!
