Sample text

On March 7, late in the afternoon a ship was sighted. As it came nearer, we saw it was a destroyer flying the American flag. The Holbrook began exchanging blinker signals, and the two ships blinked furiously, probably making arrangements for the convoying of our ship during the night. No doubt enemy subs would be likely to haunt this sea lane, and the destroyer was sent to guard against harm to us. Much faster than our ship, the destroyer began making trips across our bow, back and forth, out a mile and back across, on guard and clearing the way.

You will all do well to just stay well until the weather is better. Lots of love, Gaitha Page 3 PART I MARCH 17, 1943, TO JULY 29, 1943 Page 4 Page 5 1 At Sea March 17, 1943 We arrived at Oakland Bay on the night of February 17, 1943, to board the transport. The Oakland Bridge lights made a golden arch across the water, and reflections danced in bright streaks across the dark surface, making a striking farewell to tired Amphibians who had ridden all day on a crowded train. It was quite a trial, getting up the gangplank with the heavy equipment, barracks bag, rifle, typewriter, and sketch box, plus all the equipment we were wearing.

This seems to alarm the officers no end. It would be very nice to have a talk with the general himself and have him really know the state of chaos here. Too much faith is put in a colonel's hands, because he is from West Pointthat most overrated pile of rocks on the Hudson. Too often our West Pointers "overact" in order to hold up their Page 15 reputations as such and make a generally miserable situation for the men under them. We have seen a prime example under Lieutenant Colonel Neff, who is "building" tough men by having them out here without water (it is hauled in in cans), without bathing facilities, no laundry or place to do it, or a minute's free time.
