See this post for more information about my Grandmother’s diary.
April 9, 1943 – Friday
“One year ago today Bataan fell to the Japs. Still no word of Earl. Gladys Haskins sent a paper (Santa Fe) telling of Clark Lee being there. He told a lot about our boys. Can only hope & pray I will hear soon that Earl is safe. Felt pretty low. Warmer today. Some wind!“
Clark Lee wrote the book “They Call This Pacific”. A copy of which my grandmother had and my father gave to me. This is the article my grandmother was referring to in her entry. She created a scrapbook of newspaper articles about what was happening in the Philippines. I am thankful that my father gave me this scrapbook before he passed away.
