August 14, 1945 – Tuesday

SONY DSCWe were treated swell last night in Watersville, Maine. The whole town turned out to give us sandwiches and milk. Then about 12 o’clock at night the Red Cross was waiting with milk and doughnuts. We pulled into camp about 7 o’clock. Ate breakfast and went to a welcome home speech. We drew a suit of sun tans. Went over to the PX. Slept all afternoon and in the evening we went to the show. During the show they announced that the war was over with Japan. We talked to some people. Got my first milk shake in 3 years and went home. Called Pat on the phone. First time I gave the wrong address. But I got her the second time.
