2nd, 3rd, 4th
Preparing for the invasion. Everything is a mixup as usual. There are about 12 men on rear echelon plus three in the Hospital. We have been on the beach all day (4th) waiting to leave. We have 1 Lst with just our equipment, and 1/2 of another.  I am on the latter #471-(630).

5th Friday
All loaded by 4:30 P.M. Only one meal today, breakfast. Thompson and I have our bunks on top of a truck, with a tarp overhead. This is sure a busy place and and planes galore. It sure is exciting to wonder what the next moth or so will bring. I pray God is with us. Been getting plenty mail but we are unable to write.

6th Sat.
On guard on the ship. Still in the bay.

7th Sun.
Wrote a letter to Marine. They will be mailed with the Navy. Hot as Hell. Back hurts.

8th Mon.
Pulled out at 12:40pm in a heavy overcast and rain. They surely have these things planned. Still raining tonight. Our food has been good so far. Back still aches.

9th Tues.
Still cloudy and rainy. No excitement.
