Dec 3, 1942 – Thursday

Today is the start of the hike to Rabat. We will leave camp at 9:00am. We have our tents taken down and are just waiting for the time to start. It is now 6:30 PM and I am dead tired. We walked 18 miles the first day and that was the first time I had been on a hike since last June. The last four miles I walked pigeon toed on the side of my feet and every other way except the way I should. I was going to give up for a while but I knew the fellow on line duty would laugh so I could not let headquarters platoon down. I just gritted my teeth and kept on . I read a story, washed my feet and then went to bed.
