January 5th, 1942

Boy, it’s hot! Lt. Byers (he’s from the New Mexico Anti-Aircraft outfit) just came in, also Doc Angell and Lt. Heuget of the 20th Group. Miss Feldmuth just gave me a jar of beef concentrate, to see if I could have some beef broth made. It’s not bad — first thing I’ve eaten, it seems. Shaving is an effort; no hot water, and they say we’ll have to go easy on water pretty soon. Ship’s doing about 8 knots.
