Sat, Oct 13, 1945: climbed into a bed

"I was sent to Leyte with about 40 others assigned to a new unit.  Well while there I runs over to the 118th Gen Hosp to check on what had happened to all the fellows who were the with Schisto when I was there.  Found that there were orders from Washington stating that all treated schisto's will be sent back to the states - so I darn near climbed into a bed then and there."
