Condiciones de Vida Manila: Slept in army tents, outside cold water showers, meals were good. Recreation, none.

G.H.Q. Tokyo: Slept in warm buildings, hot showers, meals were very good. For recreation, sight seeing with buddies. We obtained the use of a jeep on such occasions.

Recuerdo más vívido de la experiencia militar We (G.I.'s) went up in the same elevator with General MacArthur and his staff during one of our lunch periods at the Dai-Ichi Bldg. GHQ and not a sound was uttered.
Lo que más extraño durante su tiempo en las fuerzas armadas State-side (civilian)
