Jan. 2, 1942

Left Bambang by truck, Sgt. Bowen driving. His foot was too bad for him yo go to Imugan with us so he went with Praeger. Three miles out we came to a damaged bridge. Walked three miles to the destroyed bridge over the Magat, a six span bridge completely demolished. Ferried the stream. Got to Bayombong by noon. Had lunch here and the Constabulary took us to Lamut River. We forded this and spent the night on the west side. Had to decide tonight whether to stay in the Cagayan Valley or move into the Mts. Considering that our Co. A was composed largely from men of Bontoc and Co B from men from Ifugao I decided to enter the Mts. If the worst came to the worst, they could be near home.
