April 8, 1944 – Saturday

SONY DSCHad a big air raid last night. They dropped personnel bombs about 300 yrds from us. They were bombing all over the beachhead. Two planes burst into fire and fell to the ground. Was quite a sight. We turned in our combat clothes and overcoats today. It’s really swell weather here now. Played cards, wrote letter, pulled guard and then went to bed.
