Thursday, March 22, 1945
Spent a very lazy day, waking up at 7:00 AM, a very late time for the army. In the morning I helped carry the dirty linen to the supply room which is manned by German Prisoners of War (with some US soldiers of course). These POW’s are also in the Mess Halls acting as cooks and KP’s. The food is good, better than before and it’s very strange to hear the men behind the steam table talking in German. All of them look well fed and most are pretty husky. Not the guy you’d like to meet up with in a dark alley.
I slept from about 3 to 5 this afternoon and saw a Red Cross movie, “Pan Americana” tonite. I had already seen it, but that didn’t make any difference.
By luck I found a pocket edition of a book Herb recommended -” Runyon a`la Carte” by Damon Runyon, a collection of very funny short stories.
Maybe I’ll go to duty tomorrow.
