Dec. 15, 1944

Four air attacks last night; five today. Thirty enemy shot down, mostly by fighters. Supported landing at San Jose, Mindoro. An enemy twin engine suicide plane passed from port to starboard (unengaged) at director level just forward of the bridge. I could see the pilot clearly. It hit the water just beyond us as it went for a carrier. One killed and three injured on carrier (reported).
