It snowed most of Sat. but the snow melted as it fell. Spent day on the briefing books for the trip. I think they tell me more than I need to know. A movie Sat. night that was d--n near pornographic. It was embarrassing. Sunday we flew out right after lunch. I think Security had some worries about a plot to rocket the M-I. Before we left I phoned Walter Reed hospital & talked to the parents of one of the worst wounded men in the Grenada affair. He is a Ranger—both legs gone, a mangled right arm & wounds to his liver. He may not make it—I’ll keep praying he does. His parents were wonderful—not an iota of bitterness—just pride & love for him & belief in the cause for which he gave so much. At the W.H. a meeting with P.M. Seaga of Jamaica. He’s been a staunch ally in the Grenada action. We’re trying to help him with his ec. problems.
