Well we left Fort Rosecrans behind at 8:00 this morning and when we got up it was raining like hell. It rained until we got about 60 miles from home. Everybody was glad to get away from there & back home again. We arrived in Fort Roach at 1:30 & then had the rest of the day off. I went home but felt rather sick. I also got word today that I am going to Florida then back to Louisiana on a pic. Will be gone 2 or 3 months. Will leave in 2 or 3 weeks.

We spent most of the day getting things ironed out here on the field & at 2:30 we set up for our first shot. It was Gen Travis in a B-17 leaving for a mission. We finished early & I spent the evening writing letters. I wrote 6 letters home.
