War Journal - Oct. 2, 1944

The first mission was run from here today but weather prevented dropping bombs because our troops were so near the target. Finished up the officer's mess today but it will probably fall down tonight. There are some German planes & equipment left here but I have not had time to go see them yet. Water is still very scarce. Received four letters & a package of films today - first mail in France! We are allowed to write letters again now but do not have time during the day & can't see at night. All our crew sat around the fire tonight & talked about what we like to eat & do best back home. Guess we have been gone long enough to begin missing all that stuff. You should hear them tell about what each Mother cooks best!
