Diary Entry 108: Saigon, Sunday Night, 26 December 1965

                                                        Sunday Night, 26 December 1965

The day after Christmas and it was work as usual for us over here. The VC ended their truce about 9:30 p.m. last night, so most everybody was back at work today. I got off a little early this evening and after supper at the Hong Kong, came back here to take down my Christmas tree and decorations.

I noticed there are lots of people out on the street last night and tonight, but haven’t heard of any bombings or grenade-throwing. Perhaps the MPs and the Vietnamese police have it under control right now.

With Xmas now gone by, the next holiday coming up is New Year’s. Think I’ll call [Lieutenant Colonel] Lee Surut and ask him if he wouldn’t like to come down to Saigon for New Year’s eve and day. He has not come to Saigon since he came here in May.

Hope to hear something on the possibility of going back to the States this week. If Mr. Niederman doesn’t write, I reckon to call him up and see what he knows. He hasn’t been back there very long (he left here on the 12th) so I'm just anxious to learn something.
