3rd Wed.
Visited Ken and saw Danny Kaye in The Wonder Man. Sure is screwy. Ken figures on going home with the 31st. Wished to Hell we would find out something.

6th Sat.
Banged up my right elbow from a tick foul. Had it x-rayed but nothing broken. No mail. Started to load equip. today. Raining tonight.

8th Mon.
All 80 pointers and 35 and 38’s got their papers and left at 4:00 PM today on an LCI. Will go to Leyte in 18 hrs.

11th Thurs.
Ken came over tonight to say goodbye. He leaves for home tomorrow. Al came with him and we drank my beer and talked until 10:30. He sure was happy.

12th Fri.
Whoopie – we are free of our bridge equip. today. Have taken it all to Eng. Depot. I never had a more pleasant job.

18th
Did our last work for the 506th this PM getting Pioneer Chests in tool tent. Then we cleaned up the tents and packed our belongings. At 12:38 we pulled out for 106 Engr. Said Goodbye 506. Show Dragon Seed, Katherine Hepburn.
