9th Tuesday
Took a hike. Went on patrol through the jungle for about 10 miles. Sure evidence of plenty fighting. Didn’t find any Japs though. The first boys here surely went through hell. Plum[sic] tired out when I got back. There were four of us. Lt. Birk, Lt. Radcliff, Dansig and myself. Hung blankets on the line for an airing. Plenty hot. Looks like rain again tonite. There is a steady stream of planes going overhead. All types, fighters, bombers and transports. Even Cubs [? illegible].

10th Wed –
Rained all last night and this AM. Didn’t do a thing all day. Flies are bothersome and time monotonous.

  1. I think the third name might be Dansig

    And “plum tired” is sic for “plumb tired.”
