September 17, 1943 – Friday

Beach at PalermoWell there’s not much to do today. We packed up everything and now we are laying around waiting to move. I suppose we will go help the 5th Army out at Salerno. Just call the 3rd division and everyone starts to advance. Anyway its the quickest way to get home. Tough luck we had to unload our truck and pack it on a different truck. We just don’t seem to deserve a rest. Went to bed early as we are to get up at 4:00 A.M. and leave for the docks.
