NINETEENTH DAY, 0530 HOURS

Sleeping in the hex tent made for tight quarters, but it was manageable, and after several weeks of bunker living, the light and airy tent was a nice change of pace. Overnight, the Chinese artillery and mortar firing had subsided all along our front. Outpost Kelly experienced no hostile action during the night. The first of August started with broken clouds and became brighter as the day went on.

I elected to keep the tanks under camouflage but decided we needed to put the ammunition stowed outside the tanks back into the ammunition wells in the fighting compartment floors. I had reflected last night on the disabled tank situation we had faced the previous morning. Had I left the tanks in their revetments rather than putting them in defilade to avoid attracting attention, there would not have been a disabled tank problem. I was not about to repeat that scenario. The tanks would remain in their revetments except for routine maintenance. I would live, learn, and move on.

I had received no word on the plan of action for this day. I was sure a plan was in the making, and I figured I would probably hear from 2nd Battalion later in the day. There had been no hostile activity since sundown the previous night. Scanning Hill 164 with my binoculars, I could detect no enemy activity or movement. It was quite different at Outpost Kelly. There was movement on the south slope and activity on the crest.
