Diary of Albert E. Holland

December 19, 1944

[New unnumbered page (26)]

Dec. 19th – Still under alert here in camp – no action – Japanese planes are using fields again -Perhaps the bombings on the 14th-15th & 16th were covering for the landings on Polillo & Mindoro (esp. the latter).

Have you ever noticed how step by step something will disintegrate (for major reasons) and then blow up for good because of some minor irritation – So it is with many of our old people – Starved, their bodies melt away, their resistance is destroyed – then a slight cold, an unimportant diarrhea – and they die.
