FRANCIS "GABBY" GABRESKI
The USAF ace pilot pens a short letter to a friend, detailing prices for purchasable USAF memorabilia

Autograph Letter Signed: "Gabby Gabreski", 1 page, 5x8. No place, August 16, 1995. On personal letterhead. To: "Dear Ernie," In full: "You are as busy as I am. Good to see you in Osh Kosh. Complete set of all aces is $30.00 + postage, tapes are $15.00 + postage. $50.00 should cover the cost! Yes I have a few left! Best wishes God Bless! Sincerely." Francis "Gabby" Gabreski (1919-2002) ranks as the all-time top U.S. Army Air Force ace. He was one of only seven USAF pilots who were aces in both WWII and the Korean War. Gabby downed 28 enemy aircraft, leading all pilots in the European theater. After 193 missions, the Air Force was ready to send him home but, shortly before boarding the plane, he discovered that a mission was set for that morning. On July 20, 1944, Gabreski crash-landed during a strafing sortie and hid out for five days. He was captured and imprisoned in Stalag Luft I, a German POW camp for the remaining eight months of the war. Gabby returned to military service in the Korean War and shot down six MIG 15s. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross, a Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, a Bronze Star, the Air Medal and awards from the French and Polish governments. Normal mailing folds. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
