On Palawan, Wayne has finally received orders sending him home.
He writes in his journal:
Today our orders came in and I would be happy except for the recent bad news. Am hoping to get home quickly so as to help alleviate the pain from the emotions for the folks. Surely, he’ll be all right.
The past 15 days have barely crept by Charge of Quarters, guard duty and whatnot; but they were nothing compare to the last two days. Now it doesn’t seem as if there’s a lot to go home to anymore. Just going home is bound to be enjoyable, but how can you enjoy yourself when hearts are breaking around you?
That’s all for tonight. Amen!
There is a little more to come, but this is Wayne’s last entry is his journal.
