May 5, 1942

Tuesday Ft. Hughes

Hello darling and a great big hug ahd kiss on our Wedding Anniversary. We don’t seem to have much luck on being together on our day, do we? Well, it’s too bad, but I can only say that my love has trebled since May 5, 1939. God, I wish I could be with you. I didn’t realize that this would be such an eventful day. At 11 at night the fort was “alerted” and we received word that the Japanese had landed on Corregidor — in small numbers. We
commenced our 12″ mortar barrage.
