December 16, 1941 

Very quiet day-had no raids. Reported into AF Hdq. Found jobs for all officers. Parcher and I do nothing but wait. Looks like Japs were trying to knock us out all at once–failed–now we shall see.

At Lubao, Dyess and the others were busy camouflaging the field. The officers and senior noncoms were living in a house west of the field, but the enlisted men were sweltering in nipa shacks on the field.
