Diary of John P. Burns

February 12, 1942 

Easy day. Waiting for orders to go back to Sqd’n. Have been away much too long. Benton treated us to quite a bull session, he is a character. Must get book–Ben Aub (sic) stories sometime.

First Lt. Benjamin A. Benton, Jr. was Armament Officer of the 24th Pursuit Group until assigned to I Corps on Bataan.
