Oct 12, 1943 – Tuesday

SONY DSCI slept pretty good all night until about 4 AM this morning. Then the enemy artillery shells started landing in our area and going over the top of us. I just laid there, and sweated them out. Some fellows went to their fox holes. Most of the shells were aerial burst and a fox hole would do you no good. We worked around all day and in the afternoon we got ready to make the big push over the Volturno river. I am on guard; on the 2nd shift.
