Contents: Well above the average --
Training began to pick up --
Who knows our destiny? --
Sometimes difficult situation --
Is this Alaska? --

Early on in our story --
Still just a big adventure --
It really looks serious now --

Snafu --
This country gets you --
We plowed on --
Dangerous game --
Tomorrow may bring untold things --
It's the damn japs --
Friendly planes, hell! --

Like a big bunch of mosquitos --
They sure did some damage --
We calmed down some --
Japs are here --
Settled on Hog Island --
Unfit for pigs --
But duty is duty --
Little lift --
Worst storm of the tour --
White Christmas --
Out there when conditions were rough --
Japanese could have sunk Salt Lake City with a baseball --
Charged with a Herculean task --
Sweating the attack --
Get the damned thing over with --
We think we will be seeing action soon --
Great big, juicy, expensive mistake --
War had gone by --
Back to civilization --
Learning experience.
