December 22, 1944

We did not sleep well last night because of all the commotion. About 9:00 p.m. we could hear shooting at different places, and at 11:30 p.m. two shots rang out from the garrison (signal for fire). We got up and looked out. The fire was on the far side of the garrison, near the church. There was an exchange of shooting between the USAFFE and the Japanese. To make matters worse, Roland was sick with an upset stomach and I had just finished taking care of him when all the shooting began.
