Pacific Ocean

Must be hitting the halfway mark today. Am mighty tired of traveling around on these damned transports. At the end of this trip, I calculate I will have traveled by ship since the war began a total of approximately 33,000 miles — a “powerful” lot of traveling in 4 1/2 months. And that’s not counting another 4 or 5 thousand miles of flying in Java.
