We are still holding our position until the Ark ships leaves Panama City in ruins. Kind of sad in away. Been there once. A pretty good town when your not planning to either take it over or bomb it into nonexistence. Maybe the Ark ships be able to take out any resistance this time. Until we are ordered to take the town, we are just sitting here killing time. Mostly listening to the radio hearing how events are going in the world and sometimes playing cards. There isnâ€™t much else to do. Still fighting everywhere in the world it seems. Some of the battles described puts the ones we fought to shame. Like the Israeli-Syrian war, which is still going on. Just at the start of the war there were 100â€™s of battalions fighting at once. The battle lasted, they said , over a week. Several 1000 men were killed on both sides just in that battle alone. Israel is now afraid they wonâ€™t be able to clear the dead before they all start to decay. It seems Israel is winning for now. Saying that because they have taken Damascus. I know one day we might be over there fighting too. Not sure if the higher up will send the Mountain Division into any desert terrain but even I donâ€™t know how they think. I do know there is mountainous regions there. Course I always hated the summers here. Too hot. Not sure how much better it be in a place like that. I fear we will fight there someday. If they fight like that with neighbors, I canâ€™t imagine how they would fight complete outsiders. Guess I got to get use to see a lot of men killed on both sides first. That is if I ever make it until then.

We got orders around midnight to move on to Panama City. Either there is nothing left of that city or there is nothing left the Ark ships can take out and it will take us to clear it out. It maybe our last battle in this war but I really hope not. I have to admit its really quiet in the our sector of Florida. Either all the Floridian units are wiped out or are on the run south ahead of the rest of the Corps. The only units still in Florida panhandle is the 1st battalion and the 2 armor ones that are with us. The rest of the brigade been ordered to link up with the rest of the Corps. Heard its being a walk in the park now for the Corps. The Corps has lost less than a 100 men since they made a battle line from Suwannee all the way to Holly Hill. The arty with them is doing most of the work. Last account there has been around 5000 Floridian soldiers either killed or injured in what looks and sounds like suicide runs against the line. As of right now the line is moving slowly south grinding everything out of its way. Its being predicted that at the rate the lines going within a week the Corps will control all of Florida. The only trouble will be in Tampa, Orlando, and Miami. Thereâ€™s also still lots of those airstrips around with probably fighters. Then thereâ€™s the Floridian ships that havenâ€™t been sunk yet. A least the Arkâ€™s are working on them. So in my mind it be more than a week before this is over. I just hope after Panama City I get in the fight more. I hate patrols anyways. Boring but then again I might get shot at while on them or worse. Either way our battalion along with the other 2 are expected to arrive in Panama City by day break. Right now we on our way there. Before we get there I feel like trying to sleep some along the way. Havenâ€™t slept good since the war started.
