321st BG War-Diary; 25 May 44 - 445th BS War Diary: Lt. Hatcher has been appointed assistant Operations Officer. Lt. Farrell and Sgt. Ellison left for the good old U.S.A. on the 30 day furlough rotation plan. There was a personal inspection of all men today with satisfactory results. Lt.s Waterman, Gunder and Sgts Fitzgerald, *** Malloy *** and Johnson and Andrews left for Anzio on the exchange plan with ground forces. Their comments should be convincing upon return. Some of the more interesting sights around the area are the many varied signs. They are all colors of the rainbow and you never know where a new one will sprout roots. “Latrine”, “Urinal”, E.M. Only”, Officers Only”, “Trash Only”, “Kill that Mosquito”, “Use Your Repellent”, and “Keep Your Tent Clean” are but a very few.
