Ronnie spent the whole day with me. He was sure proud of me. In camp at 11:00 & to bed. Got my first pass which was to go to church. Mary came after me at 9:00 & we the family went to 10:00 mass. Spent the afternoon & eve with sis & bro Harry and at home. Father Meade gave me a prayer book, crucifix, & rosary in a nice kit. It was good to get home again & have my family around me. Ronnie brought 2 little friends over & I drilled for them.
