In 1944, the famed swing music legend was in a small plane over the English Channel that went missing before it could reach France.
Now, 62 years later, retired gunner Clarence B. Wolfe is coming forward and saying hes the guy who unwittingly gave his superior officer information that led to the downing of Millers plane.
When Wolfe tried to tell his superior officer that they made a mistake, he says the Captain told him to shut his godd■■■ed mouth.
Wolfe who has written I Kept My Word (AuthorHouse), an expose about the Miller crash says he has since discovered that military leaders wanted the bandleader dead because he was too damn popular.
In his words, [Because of Miller], we were dancing and enjoying life over in England, and the generals who were mostly World War I vets didnt like it. They were a bunch of buttholes.
