Oct 31, 1942 – Saturday

The sun is shinning bright and the ocean is calm but the waves are big and rolling.  They put out the mine sweepers out today and are expecting danger.  We had to carry rations all over ship today.  Boy was it ever hot down in the holes.  Tonight four of us were picked as volunteer for a demolition job.  My buddy and I volunteered but two of the other fellows new a little more about it so they got the job.  I am going to mass tonight at 7:30.  Mass is over and we went out side to get some fresh air.  No stars and the sea is getting rough.  I am sleepy so I guess I had better close. Good night.
