Originally, he states, that he was a civilian in China and then in China and India for 35 months in the Army. But at the end he explains his desire to return States-side for re-assignment. The second book, a flip style notepad, begins March 21 1945 at the SOS Headquarters in New Delhi and 10 pages of entries detailing an amazing near circumnavigation voyage with a Trans-America trip twice to boot! aboard a ship, steam freighter Cambay. We follow him to Trincomalee Sri Lanka, Port Said, Gibraltar to Norfolk, Washington DC, Asheville, San Francisco then back and forth to Washington again and finally to end September 13 in Tokyo Japan.
