June 22, 1971
Had a real good nights sleep for a change. I was really tired since I only had 3 hours sleep the night before. We're sleeping in a transient barracks. It's not too bad though at least they gave us sheets and pillows and they've got real good shower facilities - hot water and flush toilets. Feels good after all those cold showers at Long Thanh.
Capt. Higgison called last night and said we should get a good nights sleep since we wouldn't be flying. And we're supposed to leave this morning at 8 or 9. That's the good word for today.
