Person 1 You think that you've got the horse sense but you’re as dumb as a rock

Journal entry 3 Camp is in a pretty bad location it is very cold but not freezing they wont tell us where we are though. I tend to wake up in the night because I am very cold and having bad dreams. On a normal day we are usually moving somewhere, and we have to get there fast and take the trips on bad terrain so we will be hidden.

Journal entry 4 Jeremiah will not survive no I think he will try to hide somewhere but get caught and killed. Jeremiah will never see his brother again and will wish he took the train so he could see his brother again.

Journal Entry 5 Camp has been terrible i have no friends and the food is terrible i throw up almost every time I see it. The only good thing is really hard bread that you have to soak in hot liquid for hours and its still hard, it is called hard tack. We also have frozen vegetables that make me throw up, you guys know that I hate vegetables. Lots of times I have a asked to play cards with a couple of people and they say no. I hate it here please pray for me.

Lots of times when people are hurt there limbs have to be amputated and much worse stuff that I do not want to endure. There are lots of sicknesses happening out of battle that is killing people also. There is a flu going around our camp, I am praying that I don't get it, because people are dying. Please pray for me.

Journal Entry 8 Dear Mom and Dad I can not wait till I get home life here is terrible. I am scared for my life everyday I cannot live like this I need to come home. I miss you guys so much.
