Dec 8, 1942 – Tuesday

Not much happened today. It was just about the same as yesterday. They have all of the brush cleaned away around camp now and it looks pretty nice. There is a rumor going around that we are to stay here until the first of the year. We played a little cribbage and then went to bed. The nights are getting very cold here now but the days are swell. It is getting near the rainy season so I don’t know what to expect. Badali (Vincent Badali) went to town today so I guess I’ll go tomorrow. They had a presentation of awards today. Four of the men in our company received the Order of the purple heart for being wounded in action. We only had one killed and one is still missing. We also had two fellows that were shot up pretty bad and they were sent back to the states.
