February 9th, Monday

Routine bombing as usual. About 1000 hours our 4 P-40’s returned from reconnaissance missions to land at Cabcaben Field. Almost at the same time they were jumped by a formation of nine enemy dive bombers from over the mountains. Five enemy dive bombers were seen to be shot down. However, only three P.40’s returned. This reduces us to three airplanes when Tom Garrity was lost.
