  • 15th Regiment 3rd Division

    Can anyone help me with finding some info on the 15th Regiment? All I know about it, was that it was Audie Murhpy's regiment during world war II. Other than that, not much has been written on it, at least from what I can find

    If I get a chance; I'll go down and grab my US Army OOB of WWII by Stanton. But it might not be today.
