Michael J. Gobbi, 3rd Division 15th Inf. Regiment

I recently received some items that once belonged to Michael J. Gobbi. He was a member of the 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Division during WW2. The lot included 2 pairs of GI issue eye glasses in original cases along with the requisitions as well as post cards sent from N. Africa, Algeria and all of his V-Mail letters home describing life as a combat soldier with the 3rd ID. In the near future I will try to transcribe the letters on the blog, They are pretty easy to read so it should not be too complicated.
Michael was in from the beginning with the 3rd and served through the occupation in Germany. so as you can imagine there is a good amount of content with lots of details!
