Well I left home at 6:00 & was here at 6:30. Found out I was on KP. I went over to the kitchen & worked until 10:00 washing pots & pans. I was taken off then for I had 60 signs to paint & letter. 30 for the officers & 30 license plates for cars & trucks. Finished at 4:30 with the first coat & after chow had to work until 9:00 painting litters & cans for a unit that is shipping to Australia. In bed at 10:00.

Got up early this morning & started in, boy what a mess. But by noon we had some semblance of order & the shelving was started & the cabinets built. By 4:00 we had things all in our building & started in arranging our barracks & cleaning them out. This new field isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. But it isn’t bad. I received my air medal tonite & am going to send it home. Well I’m all pooped out & am going to turn in early.
