August 1, 1943 – Sunday

SONY DSCWe woke up in the morning and there was a big air raid going on. Man, I never saw so much ‘ack ack’ in the air at one time. I saw a couple of planes shot down. We moved out at 8 AM Got to a bivouac at 1:30 Left again for the front at 5:30. I saw them bringing the dead out of the hills so I took a picture. We are now right on the front lines ‘B’ Company has lost two officers already. We are fighting mostly Germans. The artillery is really giving them hell. I am going to turn in.
