During World War II, Lou Corbin served in U.S. Army intelligence, attaining the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. His contacts in the military and his later position as News Director at radio station WFBR, gave him access to interesting inside stories and leads concerning UFOs. He was a friend and confidant of retired Marine Corps Major Donald E. Keyhoe, who apart from writing books and articles on UFOs, lead the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) as its Director for over a decade...Newsmen such as Corbin and Frank Edwards were in a position to give Keyhoe leads, and there were plenty of people around Washington, D.C. and Baltimore willing to furnish him with interesting news. Among them were Mrs. Zapp, of the Washington D.C., Ground Observer Corps, Col. Frank Milani, head of Baltimore Civil Defense, various accident investigators at the Civil Aeronautics Board, and employees of the Civil Aviation Administration. Corbin served on the original NICAP Panel of Special Advisers. More information on Lou Corbin can be found at: Jan Aldrich, Project 1947.
