Remembering long-time volunteer Barb Glasscoe

| |

Barb Glasscoe, one of Phantom Regiment’s most beloved and loyal volunteers, died Sunday, May 12. She was 65. She had spent much of her adult life as a Phantom Regiment volunteer and was vital to the tremendous look Phantom Regiment has on the field.

She first volunteered in 1981 after writing a letter to the corps asking if they were looking for volunteer help. Shortly thereafter, she hopped on a bus as the corps traveled to California, not knowing anyone. (More on that later.) Barb started as a member of the kitchen crew before moving to the sewing team in 1983, when her tremendous seamstress skills were discovered. She became the coordinator of the sewing team in 1995. Barb has done thousands of uniform fittings, sewn even more flags, and generally been key to making the corps look incredible every time it steps on the field.
