January 24, 1942 

Washed clothes and hunted snipers all day. After evening meal went up to 34th again, then up to front. Spent night there, very little sleep. Guns firing all night. Mighty rough country.

The 200 officers and men of the 21st Pursuit, on bivouac near the Biaan River were awakened after midnight on January 23/24 and loaded into buses for the seven-mile trip to Quinauan to reinforce the sister 34th Pursuit, now under Brig. Gen. Clinton Pierce, who had just replaced Selleck as CO of the 71st Division.
