November 19, 1944

We always expected our bombers on Sunday and they didn’t disappoint us today. Again, the Manila harbor area received a great deal of punishment, and though the consistent and steady firing of enemy aircraft resounded throughout the city, we didn’t see any of our bombers hit.

Today our bombers were at a considerable distance over the water, and we had to strain our eyes to see the bombs dropping. The raids were more or less sporadic all day, but the smooth humming sound of hundreds of planes high in the heavens assured us that our bombers were headed for other areas.
