“Buttons,” Espiritu Santo

Rest day. PatSU 1-2 arrived yesterday afternoon with Suydam, Jeeter Hare, George Littman, and the remainder of what was formerly VP-51. Went out to the USS Chandaleur (AV-10) the ship that brought PatSU, this afternoon for a treat of ice cream and Coca-Cola.

Went over to the Minneapolis for dinner with Lew Larson. The bay is jammed with shipping — a set up for a Jap attack.
