Diary of Tomas Confesor

37th Day, Feb. 1, 1945

Early after midnight, we are on our way to Hawaii.

Before noon we stopped at Hilo for gas. We have made a few purchases. We have learned that POWs were rescued in Cabanatuan.

We take off and land on Hickam Field at 3 p.m. Gen. Richardson is here to receive Pres. Osmena. We take lunch at the General’s place.

I am making additional purchases here, a pair of shoes and underwear. I secure three sun helmets good ones at $5.00 each

I went to meet Miss Kuprez but she was out. We take off at 5 p. In.
