May 16, 1945

Ensa Concert Party tonight, after which we entertained in our Mess. Walt McKibbon dropped in. Our rear party from Friesoythe arrived home, so now we are intact once more. Today we have been filling in forms for either the far east, Army of Occupation or demobilization. The weather is grand, expect to go to Bremen tomorrow.
