Did not rest very well last nite. They didn’t get my birth made up until 11:30. Then I tossed and tumbled all night. Got up at 7:30 and ate a 8:00, but in reality it was 9:00. Played poker until lunch time & won $3.20. After lunch we continued until 5:00 and I lost 5¢ all afternoon. One of the boys, Cpl Hill, got caught drinking in the Club Car with a girl & was told to leave but didn’t heed the order. They are holding a court martial tonite as I write this for him. The adjutant told all of us that gambling & privileges were out on account of it. And that he would see we caught hell at the P of E with extra training. We just left Albuquerque, N. Mex. as I write this and I am in my birth ready for bed.
