12 October 1944

Quite a few of the boys seasick this morning. Seas are a little rough, although not bad. So far I have stayed in pretty good shape, although I can tell that I am not on dry land. Slight dizzy feeling for a few minutes this morning. Find it difficult to write between the rolling of the ship and the vibration of the engines. The ocean has taken on a deep and colorful blue. Very pretty with lots of white caps. Chow has been fair, although the manner in which it is served leaves much to be desired. The chow schedule was SNAFU today and we didn’t get to eat dinner until about 7:30. You have to stand in line to do anything as this ship is loaded with about 4000 officers, men, WACs, and others.
