September 2, 1945

At 4 PM the United States flag was raised over our camp, now named Camp Mallette. Ferris asked me at 9 AM to work in galley – okay. Six B 29’s dropped 150 chutes loaded with food, clothing, medicine, magazines at 10 to 11 AM. I stayed up until 1 AM cooking “beans for breakfast.” Hubert Shurtz ate 20 lbs of food and was not sick!
