Well we were up at 5:30 & was out to finish up here at March Field today. We had to photograph a P-38 taking off & we had to use the runway several times. We had to run for it because of planes landing. One plane’s landing gear almost touched our truck top parked near by. Murphy & I went up to the post Thanksgiving dance. Had a fair time. Left there at 12:00 midnite & went to San Berdo. We stayed at SBABase & slept on the floor in a hut. Was it cold. Went to bed in dark & got up in dark.

Was up this morning at 8:00 and set up in the Briefing Room. Had one shot before dinner. Today was Thanksgiving. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, dressing, gravy, peas & carrots, apple pie, candy & coffee. It was done to a twin A Master Sgt . A crew chief was working on a plane & the plane started to roll ahead. The Sgt. ran into get the putt putt out of the way & the prop got him & spread him all over the field. After lunch we took some take offs outside & one plane when landing lost its tire. At supper our lights were off & did not come on until 1:00 this morn. Went to bed at 8:30.

Went over to Hollywood Park today & was very lucky. Hit one for $98.00. Had a lot of fun.
