April 8, 1942

Retreating forces is continous. The Japanese still continue there gains of territories. Planes continue dropping dbomb at us. We are preparing for order to retreat. We form our line on Alamgan [Alangan] creek, At 5:00 pm the Japanese bullets reached us. Our officer in charge ordered us to withdrew. Every body ran for his life, leaving anything that make himself heavy. Oh, nothing was now important than the safety of our lives. I took refuge along the beach until we reach KM 164 at dawn with out tasting any bit of food. Good I was able to find Manong Carte and our other companions on the way.
