March 27, 1942 

Got up for awhile this afternoon but so weak I had to lie down pretty quick. Started in evening feeding the pilots special food. Must be fattening us for the kill. Something brewing.

The flight surgeon of the detachment had reported to Maj. Gen. King, commander of the Luzon Force on Bataan, that if the pilots did not get extra food, there would be no more flying. A ‘training table” was established for 25 of the pilots, beginning March 27th. Extra food and vitamins were to be sent from Corregidor to provide three full meals for ten days to build up their strength.
