The men arrive in Hattiesburg. The local newspaper, Hattiesburg American reads, “Japs Invade Mississippi.”

Ronald is assigned to the mess hall. He is ordered to make gravy from scratch but he doesn’t know how. The gravy is so bad, he is told to throw it out.

He has a reprieve from cooking during his three months of basic training.
