Days are plenty hot at sea. Sweat all the time regardless of what we do. Jap propaganda program called the landing a bluff and say they have nothing to fear. Wonder how their Victory Parade turned out the 20th. A convoy of 10 APA’s, 2 LSD’s, 4 DD’s and 5 APD’s passed us late afternoon steaming south at 11 K. New moon really looks good. One of the Filippinos [Filipinos] aboard is from Manila, his wife is in the States, but family still in Manila.
