Photos from Bert Jacobs, whose father Lazarus H. Jacobs served with Sv/276 at Camp Adair, and later transferred to M/276 during the battle for Wingen-sur-Moder. Most of the pictures depict a liberation party for Forbach held during the winter of 1945/46. It appears many Trailblazers still in Europe after the war ended were invited to attend -- many wear the SHAEF patch. Of note is that the wife of Colonel Morgan, the 276th commander, was also present. If any of our Trailblazers or French friends have information on this event, they are urged to contact our Trailblazer editor, Diane Kessler. Photo of Al Homer, I/274 courtesy of his son Todd Homer.
