15th Thurs.
Same old routine. Got 8 letters.

16th Friday
Went to dentist and got a tooth filled. Passed O.C.S. physical, but possibilities of getting any where are futile. Prepared for fall field inspection to-morrow. I wonder if it is a sign that we are going to move to the front. Wrote two letters tonight.

17th Sat.
My day off. 1st one so far, and then my whole A.M. was wasted by this inspection. Started making the airplanes for the boys. Banged up two fingers exploding a 50 Cal. Shell.

18th Sun.
Starting tomorrow we are going in to advanced combat training. It looks like will be in for it now. While down at the beach looking for shells I saw a big bomber come skimming over the water with only one motor going. You could see holes all along the fusalage[sic]. There is Hell for someone everyday. Our time will no doubt come.
