We left Majuro today at 0930. We are on our way to Truk at last. I feel rather impatient to get this over with. I feel sure we will be used on this operation and so does everyone else. I feel rather like an actor just before going on stage for his first feature role. I do want to prove that we have something good in our night fighters. I feel good to be underway again. The ship is swaying slightly and the creaks and groans of the ship motion are like a lullaby. I am turning in now at 2200.
Feel free to add comments or to suggest corrections on errors that I made transcribing.
Tomorrow, February 13, 1944…
A day at sea no more…
