Airmen of Note - USAF jazz band at NCM

The "Airmen of Note" USAF jazz band delighted the crowd with great music!

The 2015 Armed Forces Day Celebration at the National Cryptologic Museum was a great success! Held on 16 May 2015, the event featured a variety of family-friendly activities. A highlight was the "Airmen of Note" USAF jazz band who performed a WWII era show featuring Glenn Miller hits. Everyone enjoyed their fabulous musical talents! The event also included a variety of demonstrations. The NCMF provided free items for visitors and also had a Mr. Softee ice cream truck available!
