Page forty-eight, newspaper article: “U.S. Forces Sink Giant Plane-Carrying Jap Sub" accompanied by the following narrative;

"After leaving Nagaski we went to Tinian and picked up two Army hospitals which we took to Kure, the great Japanese naval center in the Inland Sea where the Jap fleet hid. From Kure we went to Sasebo a great city of over a million inhabitants. Other Japanese cities visited were Hiro Wan and Nagoya. We were scheduled to bring Army men back to the States from Nagoya for demobilization but at the last minute our orders were changed and we were sent to Manila."
