Had a pass for today but had to wait until I got paid then recovery my $18.55. I found out I couldn’t go for we have to be here at 10:00 tomorrow to get our finance for our meals on the trip. Schokey & I went over to Hollywood & shopped & it turned out to be a binge. Got home at 11:00 and both caught hell. If I get finished by 12:00 I’ll call Mary & have her come & take me home & spend the afternoon with her.

Was on the set this morning at 8:00. Boy what a dump this is: mud, mud, mud. We have to walk about a mile to chow. This field had a very rugged day. We shot a fake briefing & the interrogation was the real McCoy. There were only 7 crews back. I ate early tonite & have quite a few letters to write. I’m waiting now for the papers to come to put in for my discharge.
