5 units, including 3 divisions and arty have reached Cagayan so the defenders there are eventually doomed and have begun to retreat toward Malaybalay. Davao and Cagayan AF have been wrecked by naval bombardments. Malaybalay is immune from naval bombardment but it is hard to get supplies up there.

Efforts to get supplies to Mindanao have paid benefits but most of the AK's trying to get in are picked off by Jap SCTFs.

PBY in Southern Mindanao have highlighted the IJN tankers routes to Borneo and Java so the subs are having a field day.

Moluccas: A well coordinated fighter sweep over Ternate with our best P-38's, P-47's, F6F's and Corsairs over Ternate was highly successful. We lost some F6F's but inflicted about 2:1 in fighter losses and I think wrecked the air groups there. Now they are not putting up any CAP.

No fighters at Boela or Ambon or Namlea or Kendari either. All the bases in NW New Guinea are building up. Dobo is a level 8 AF. Koepang finally has enough supply. Plan is to take Boela, Ambon and Namlea and Kendari and then Ternate and Manado before Mindanao falls. Tall order.
