At 6:30 a.m. I attended Mass and received Holy Communion. At 8 a.m. I went to see General MacArthur and I asked him to assign me some work as this inactivity is terrible. He thanked me and asked me to wait, as he had plans in which he wanted to utilize me. His office was being installed at “top side” at the extreme end of the long concrete barracks. The outside door and windows of his office and the windows of the adjoining ones were being protected with sandbags. I returned to the tunnel.
At 4 p.m. went to the Post Exchange(P.X.) at topside to buy some things I needed urgently.
