My uncle was a medic and was attached to the third infantry division and I guess was at Anzio,among other places in Europe.
Signal 5X5, if you have any photos of him in the service, or any kind of other info on him or stories he wrote, I'd LOVE to hear them! Maybe you could send me an email (email@example.com). I've been doing WW2 reenacting with a few buddies from work for a little over a year now. My impression is that of a medic in the 3rd ID/ 15th IR/ Charlie Co. Depending on how long your uncle was with the Third he could have fought in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France, and Germany.
I'll see if I can dig up some photo's of my ancestors in WW2. My grandfather on my mother's side was in the Merhcant Marine. I had several great uncles in the war. One flew P-38 Lightnings, and survived the war, one died while serving as a navigator/ bombardier in a B-25 Mitchell. All the info I have on them is at home and I regret to say I don't even remember their names. I do remember my great uncle Milo Grey was a sharpshooter with the 357th IR, 90th ID and was in the group of guys who "liberated" a huge stash of German gold bullion and other loot near the end of the war.
