Darling Kay:

We have arrived back to Pogie Junction (Philippines) and are going to pick up some more ships and make an invasion on Luzon. They claim there will be twice as many men and material in this invasion. There are so many different kinds of ships with us now it is hard to count them all. We are going to need them too.
