We were up at 6:00. Went out to the field at 7:30. Around 10:00 they brought in a B-24 bomber & we made one shot all day. We were late getting in and had to dress in the dark. We got a pass for th night & Bobbie drove the truck in to San Diego. We wired for some money & it was there waiting. We stood guard over the truck from 9:30 to 10:00. After we went to see the town. There was at least 1,000,000 soldiers, sailors & marines there.

Slept until 9:00 today. Have a very bad cold & after I finished a couple of hours work came back & went to bed. Was in bed all afternoon & Byron sent me some soup & coffee for supper. Bobbie drove up with the mail & is staying here tonite. Heard today my friend Slate went down over Bremen, Germany. The ship broke into three pieces & so I guess he’s done for. If I do not feel better I’m going on sick call in the morning. Haven’t heard from home since 1st Oct & I’m beginning to lose faith in them there. I think their love is beginning to wane a little.

    Aerial bombing of Bremen, Germany during World War II

    The Bombing of Bremen in World War II by the British Royal Air Force and US Eighth Air Force involved both indiscriminate “area bombing” and, as capacity improved, more targeted raids upon the city’s military-industrial facilities. These included the shipyards of Vulkan, AG Weser and Atlas Werke, the Valentin submarine pens, oil refineries and the aircraft works of Focke-Wulf. Wikipedia
