January 28, 1942

Up at 0600.
Went over to Vestal and got some electrical stores at 0900.
Went over to Honolulu again today and mailed a lot of postal cards to people at home.
The island looks very war like as most of the military men and civilians carry gas masks and hundreds of armed army, navy and marine scattered around.
Sand bag barricades and air raid shelters are plentiful everywhere.
The latest estimates say that there was about 5000 casualties caused by the raid.
F.B.I. reported that about 30,000 rifles were seized the day the raid was made.
These were to be used by 5th Columnists when landings were affected from Jap transports.
Nothing unusual happened today.
Turn in 2200.
