It reported because the cold and rain everyone wore the 'Irv shirt' named after WO1 Irving C. Reid and Boonie (rain) hats. The 101st PIO mem took about 1,400 feet of 16mm film of hoist missions or other activities for a training film. The unit now had TV sets. SP4 Roy M. Mayberry, a jump qualified medic, helped test of new safety harness for CE and medics.

However, on the 17th 851 was lost in an accident with the maintenance tent; so they were back to 11 aircraft.
