At 1830, G-3 couldn't give any definite information as to when the regiment would move. Enemy aircraft flew over the area and extremely low. Division reported another one coming from the SE.

By 1940, the Reg't was brought up to date on the "Big Picture". The 2nd Bn reported a French family, with German equipment in their possession, was moving into a house in their area. G-2 was notified.

The day was spent in "cleaning up" of personnel and equipment, and the orienting of replacements, with regards to the mission and arms of the regiment.
