November 26, 1945

26 _____ today we had movie in after messing space at 1300 & again at 1830 _ we changed time ahead another hour so its now ___ hours dif then west coast. Orders were changed _ were not going to San Francisco _ well most likely go to San Diego & we alto get there the 2nd which is Sun. Not much going work going on _ its pertty hard sleeping at night because we sleep most of the day. Ship was soupose to be 2000 miles from San Francisco at 800 but were behind time because of storm & heavy wind. Ship rolling a lot because of heavy seas. Ship 47°N at 173 M at 800

alto = ought to
pertty = pretty

Photo shows the crew's public relations staff. These were the men who sent press releases about the ship's campaigns to hometown papers. For a crew of 1300 men (and no such thing as "group email"), that was a big job.
