57th Infantry Regiment
In bivouac under control of General Pierce now.
Capt. Francis & Earleen Allen ANC. married in field this evening.
NEW YEAR’S DAY, what will 1942 bring for us. Many promotions in regiment today. No contact with enemy yet but considerable Japanese aerial observation.
Promoted to rank of Major; first war promotion in the 57th. Helped Raulston take care of bomb casualties from ORANI. What a sight.
