Got back here late last night. Our squadrons made two missions while we were gone yesterday. Lost two ships yesterday but the crew from one is known to be safe. Today two more ships were lost. Pappas & Kiel flew with other crews today. Pappas' ship got about 35 holes in it. Lee's ship (with Kiel) was hit over the target but are believed to be safe somewhere - we will know tomorrow. The other ship went down over the target in flames. Three of my best friends were in it. - Martin, Singe & Lanston. Four chutes were seen to open - so maybe they are PW's. We are on alert to go out tomorrow but so many ships are shot up it may be impossible.
