H. Beaber - At Los Banos, Philippines - Wednesday, January 3, 1945

On New Year's Day, we saw some more P-38s.

Then on Tuesday, yesterday, we saw our first 4 motored bombers. There were 22 of them and what a beautiful sight! I cannot describe our feelings and it would be hard for you who have never been prisoners to understand.

The Japanese tell us that a crisis is at hand. Excitement and hope running high in camp.
