ToDay is the Birthday of

Fair and hot, wind So.

Got to bed at 2 a.m. but not to sleep for some time.

6 a.m. cleaned up our cots, got ready for breakfast.

Took a run before breakfast.

This morning the two platoons faced each other about ¼ mile apart and advanced by crawling thru each other’s lines. Avery and I and Cotti were the only ones that got thru unseen.

Then we had an obstacle race, then the creep up on a sentry game.

Eleanor came up with the motor corp ambulances and some members and brought our dinner.

After dinner we had sub-machine shooting practice.

Got a ride home from the Armory with Lieut Damon.

Went up on the hill to fix the heater.
