2013 Reunion Report
Colonel Steve Osborn, current G-3 of the Iowa National Guard was selected as the 2013-2014 President of our 34th Infantry Division Association at our October 10-11 reunion at the Snoney Creek Inn an Camp Dodge in Johnston IA
Other Highlights ...
Mark your Calendars: our next Reunion will be held October 4-5, 2014, again at the Stoney Creek Inn and Camp Dodge, both in Johnston IA.
The closure of our Tri-State Chapter, which was approved in principal at the 2012 reunion, was completed at this reunion. Their final treasury was adequate to allow all Tri-State members to be rolled into the National Association as Life Members. Yes, LIFE Members!
During the eleven years of the "War on Terror", we have had over 20,000 soldiers serve in the 34th Infantry Division in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as deployments for Noble Eagle support for homeland support in the U.S. Our 2014 Reunion will be a special "Welcome Home" for ALL these soldiers and their families.
Continued Honors - and Responsibilities - for our Ben Corell
Colonel Ben Corell proudly commanded our Red Bull 2nd Brigade Combat Team while it was deployed to Afghanistan from November 2010 to July 2011. Ho followed that by serving as your 34th Infantry Division Association President for this past year, 2012-2013.
But this year the National Guard decided we could not simply keep him as our honored Ironman; Corell was given a new responsibility as Deputy Commanding General (Support) of the 34th Infantry Division in Rosemount MN. And in July he was given the rank commensurate with that responsibility.
We are proud to tell all Red Bulls that Brigadier General Benjamin J. Corell was 'flagged' in a promotion ceremony by his commanders and family in a ceremony at Division Headquarters.

34th Division Station List, 9 Feb 1941
The list of 'Home Stations' for all units of the division, just before it was activated in the Federal Service in 1941, is now online among our History Papers as a PDF file, five pages. The orignal document, here transcribed, was recently found in the Library and Archives of the State Historical Society of Iowa.
We know, from our own experiences in World War II, what it means to lose a fellow Red Bull. To their families, their friends, their comrades of this generation, we will maintain this small remembrance in their honor, in your honor.
"May they have no more hills to climb,
nor cold, nor rain, nor mud, nor enemy fire,
and may they now rest in Peace."
President: COL Steve Osborn
