On my trip to Miami last month, I was finally able to see Bill's diary. Up until then I had only seen a photocopy of it.
Now I will be able to scan the entire diary in color for the documentaries and this website.
One of the first pages that we scanned in color was this one. In this diary entry, Bill writes that "Col. J. H. Howard's ship "Ding Hao" had gone to 9th Fi Command Hdq. Lt. Bickel replaced Col. Howard." There is also a nice photo of Ding Hao I had not seen yet!
Do you recognized these men?
