11 June 1944

D + 5

1110:- Routine. Sick call and administrative work. Letter from Mother and three from Jane written on or about the last of May. Both good and bad for the morale, -- but morale is good enough to absorb even major nostalgic setbacks at this time. The U.S.S. TUSCALOOSA is a good fighting ship -- she has done well in the past -- and will do well in the future.

Underway at 0930 -- returning to the French coast. Personnel rested and ready for what may be ahead. May God go with us.

2300:- Made anchorage at approximately 1730. All is quiet on the western eastern front. NEVADA firing a few salvos. No sign of enemy activity. Turning in now -- with clothes on, awaiting call for G.Q.
