Br 54 Brigade at Butuan still has '41 squads and not very many of them but does have her heavy equipment. They are still attached to III Indian Corps so if I attach the to USFFE and put them in rest with USFFE in Malaybalay will they upgrade? Or do I have to move them back to Malaybalay?

Never mind. I just realized they have remnants on Palawan and freaking Hollandia. I will have to reunite the remnants as I recall.

*************June 27************

I forget what happened other than the Japs put LRCAP over Medan and shot down about 15 Vengeance. I blame the staff.

Imperial High Command announce they can see an "invasion force near Truk". Hmmm? Maybe they mean the transports at Ponape? Or Eniweetok? But the main invasion force is assembling at Wotje, which is > 1000 mi from Truk. I told him it was a "fishing excursion"

Why tell me some of my forces are spotted? It's meta-game. Maybe he wants me to THINK he believes Truk is the target ...or maybe he really does

Sumatra: A possible division has joined the Japs North of Medan. We will have to wait for 5th Indian to walk down oncce they get ashore at Padang.

Maybe land on the west coast again and try to outflank them.

Excellent defense of Sumatra by the Shinto Boys.

5 CV's and 12 CVE's now assembled near Wotje in 3 Air Combat TF. I think Essex had a collision as she has 5% system damage. Annoying.

510 carrier A/C. Only 3 BB's. USS Long Island has P-47's with their wings glued back...ready to fly off if we capture an AF.I think the P-38's can fly in from Eniweetok. Time to go. Slower transports staging forward to Eniweetok now.

JJ has to know an attack is coming but may not know where. We missed the chance to rescue Douglas at Bataan but at east his clone is in Darwin.

Special forces ready to seize Anatahan and Amalgan and Anaheim or whatever the third one is...to be used for naval rearming bases and eventually AFs
