0530: I climb out of sleeping bad and find coffee. CWACs (Canadian Womens Army Corps) are wonderful, they give us coffee.
0530 to 0630: We decide which team will ride in which Jeep, and then change our minds many many times. On the plus side the nice CWAC women gave us breakfast bags to take on our mission.
0645: Three jeeps leave encampment for rally point. Captain Hunter, CWAC nurse Gutarra, and Trooper Tata ride with me.
0730(ish): We embark on our mission. The Yank in front of us falls farther and farther behind the convoy. We mutter a lot.
0800: Captain Hunter offers me a cigar. Excitement ensues until we realize we cannot light the damn things in an open vehicle with the windshield down. Sadness then ensues. We curse the slow Yank some more.
0820: Ambushed!! Happily the Jerries decide to play with the Yanks up front. Trooper Tata settles in to guard our front right wheel. None of us die and we get a chance to light our cigars.
0900: Arrive near town of Nouveau Oxford. Yanks and Commonwealth form up and armored vehicles move in to support.
0920: Begin moving up main road. Trooper Tata has captured two Jerries. Corproal Connolly seems to be dead. A Yank friend is hit and a Yank officer and I run into the road and pull him out for medical attention. Lt. Manweiler attends to the wounded American.
