25 Wed.
No sleep. Co. built first portion bridge under fire in the S.W.P.A. across river at Palo. Still bombing and strafing. Got another ship and one of our gas dumps. Back hurts.

26 Thurs.
Conditions same. Moved up to front lines. In fox holes. Snipers all over. Even been sneaking up and stabbing men in their fox holes. Sure is hell. One of the jeep drivers nerves went to Hell. He is the second one so far in our Co. I got his job. Three of us went after sniper. We got him with our tommy guns. Sleep in muddy fox hole tonight.
