Okinawa Diary – May 27, 1945


May 27, 1945

Rain continues.

Early this morning a sniper was killed not far from our area, probably one who escaped from the planes. Three alerts this morning, but nothing happened.

Alert tonight again. Japs over throughout night. We got little sleep, because of the A.A. fire. Alert ended around 4:30 A.M.

Nothing throughout day. Worked at lab tonight. Finished around 1130, just as air raid started. Very misty rain. Everything has been slush and mud around the tents throughout past few days.

Forgot to mention that we had an air raid this morning around 8:00 A.M. Flak burst right above our area. A piece of flak hit a tent in the marine area next…
