Same old story.

25 Mon.
Christmas day. On guard, some deal. Filipinos had a dance in the kitchen. It was packed. Had their own orchestra and decorations. They danced all afternoon. In the evening the orchestra played xmas carols from house to house. C-47’s (2) dropped hundreds xmas bags over Carigara for the children.

26th Tues.
Drove to Tanauan. Quite a big place and another big airport. I saw hundreds of planes.

27th Wed.
We had our 1st causality tonight when Jerry Kuegler died in the 1st Field Hosp. of Blackwater fever, an aftermath of Malaria. He was 28 years old. A big husky man.
