August 2, 1945 – Thursday

A4P113-1-600We arrived at Marseilles at 3:30 am this morning. Loaded onto trucks and went out to the staging area. We were told that we would be here from 5 to 7 days. We drew our blankets and went to bed. Was up at 7 and ate breakfast. Then went back to bed till dinner time. After dinner we sweated out the P.X. line. Then sweated out the coke line. Then the chow line. Then the coke line, then the beer line. Then went to a stage show that was no good and a show that wasn’t much better. That’s all for today.
