August 16, 1943 – Monday

SONY DSCWell we had a rest today.  The whole company was in.  All we did was lay around, play cards, read, write letters, and sleep.  The first platoon had to go out and work.  Went to bed early.  They have been bombing Messina continuously all day.  You need stop and go signals up there.
