22 Tues
Still sitting tight. Plenty of snipers and a lot of vehicles are being blowed upon the road.

23 Wed.
Called out this AM. Went up 16 miles, put in a 72ft. assault boat bridge. Took the 22 of us 3 1/2 hours, which isn’t bad. We were plenty scared, but nothing happened.

24 – 25 Fri.
Still working at the bridge. Guards shot a Jap at 4:30 this morning as he was walking toward the bridge.

26th Sat.
Same old story. Plenty Jap snipers.

27th Sun.
Went after Lt. Birk. Risky trip.

28th Mon.
Our bridge went out last night.

29th Tues.
Picked up all equipment. Going to camp.

30 Wed.
Left today, but got hung up on a bypass and had to spend the night by the side of the road. Rained like Hell.

31st Thurs.
Dick’s birthday. I sure miss all of them. Have covered over 100 miles and are now held up by bad roads. Camped again. More rain.

July 1st
Still here. Still raining. Driving on right side of road starting today.
