August 28, 1943

Louis Wolf left on detail today. “Alice” was his nickname. He was a good kid, not all there, but he meant well. He hated to leave me last night. He and I had become quite good friends, some didn’t like him because he made too much noise, but he was okay. I certainly hope he make O.K. I plan to visit him in the Philadelphia someday. He certainly wants me to come. Too bad Lt. Edwards couldn’t be more agreeable to him. American line is drawing in closer to us.

Left San Francisco 2 years ago today. About ¾ of my time has been spent as a prisoner of war – such is life in the Philippines.
