May 17, 1945

May 17 — Gordie, Pat Coulter, Stover and Smith and I drove up through Oldenburg to Wilhelmshaven and the submarine fleet which had surrendered. We then drove back to Oldenburg and out to Bremen. Bremen had taken a terrible pounding, but is peculiar. Walls are standing but the buildings are gutted.
