7th Armd Div Patch

Roll out the barrel. We'll have a barrel of fun.
Roll out the barrel. We've got the blues on the run.
Zing! Boom! Tararre! Ring out a song of good cheer.
Now's the time to roll the barrel, 'cause the gang's all here.

The 65th reunion was held in New Orleans, where we visited the National World War II Museum and greatly enjoyed the canteen show. Many of these files are very large video files that you should download to your computer to play from there, since they will play better from there than they will over the Internet.

Death of Carl M. Corbin of New Orleans

Sadly, Carl Corbin who lived in New Orleans passed away at age 96 on August 19, 2011 -- just a month before the 7AD reunion in his home town. Capt. Carl McArn Corbin entered combat in August 1944 as the S-4 (Supply Officer) of 40th Tank Battalion and became S-3 (Operations Officer) 28 Sep 1944. He became Maj. Corbin 11 Nov 1944. He headed Task Force Corbin (10 Sherman tanks, a platoon of tank destroyers, a company of armored infantry, and engineers) near Malempré, Belgium 24 Dec 1944 to cover the 7AD move to Manhay. He was transferred to be S-4 of HQ/CCR 31 Dec 1944, where he remained for the duration. After V-E Day, he served as the final commander of 38 AIB, sailing home with them in October 1945.

Carl had a very significant career in journalism, both before and after the war, including defying the Louisiana political machine of Huey Long. Click here for an excellent article about Carl.
