Finished up the platform at 4:00 today. It’s a honey and just what the doc ordered. Well I was just laid down after supper when the Lt. came in and said come with me O’Neal & the truck driver too. I said what shall I wear & he said just what you have on is OK & you had better bring your dog tags for I had them hanging up on the window. And I was off on my first mission. The clipping tells the rest & was I glad to get back & did I eat at midnight.
