April – 1945

1st Sunday
Easter – and April Fool’s Day. Packed up this AM and pulled out at 1:40 pm. I sure hated to leave. It will be tougher wherever we go. Adams and I had charge of the loading and were well complimented on the job we did. To bed at 10:30 and darn tired too. Had a shower with hot water.

2nd Mon.
Pulled away from shore this morning and we are sitting out in the bay. Food is OK so far. Manila sure looks nice from the bay. Nothing like I know it does.

3rd Tues.
New orders. Pulled out at 7:30 for Mindoro I think. Went right by Corrigador at 10:47. It sure is just a big hunk of stone.

4th Wed.
Landed on Mindoro near San Jose. Are in a nice [? illegible] area waiting orders.

5th Thurs.
Laying around all day.

6th Fri.
Alerted tonight. Hot as Hell.

Still here and still hot as Hell.

Hot as Hell. Played ball again. Received our 1st mail – 8 letters from Marine.
