Diary Entry 22: Saigon, Wednesday Morning, 7 July 1965

                                                                                         Wednesday Morning, 7 July 1965

It’s almost unbelievable!  I went to sleep at 7:30 last night and did not get a phone call or other disturbance through the night!  Feel like a million dollars right now.  Will finish writing, bathe and dress, and go over to the Rex for breakfast if the VC didn’t blow it up while I was sleeping.  Believe it or not, hair oil is not available at the PX, and this has been a sore point with me.  The PX has lots of female hair spray and lots of other ladies items even though there are only about 200 nurses in all of Vietnam.  But they don’t have things like men’s hair oil.

Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon at Tan Son Nhut visiting my airline.  We had some operations to plan.  This morning I have to see General Crowley at 8 a.m. and General Westmoreland at 2 p.m.  Subject:  Airlift for rice shipments to civilians.  Gotta get some more planes from some place.
