TACLOBAN, Leyte Is.
 

The 503s PRCT bivouacs briefly briefly in a coconut grove some 3 to 4 miles south of TACLOBAN. 

We listen to armed forces radio broadcasts in the afternoons. We do not get the broadcasts directly. There is a Navy communications party about 10 miles south of us, and some go down to it during the early hours of the morning to hear the radio broadcasting from the States.  Before this becomes known,  a couple of our officers (3rd Bn) make some shrewd bets on the football games. Their success ends when it is discovered the afternoon games have been re-broadcast.   (Recollection of Jack Herzig.)

On 12 December 1944  we embark on LCI's for the Mindoro invasion, scheduled for 15 December.
