I think because of the International dateline, it was 2/22/45 in the states. You gain a day after you pass some arbitrarily drawn line from North to South in mid Pacific.

I did an R&R over Christmas in Sydney in '69. Everywhere I went, as soon as the Aussies found out I was a US Marine, I was treated like a king. It was tough getting back on that plane.
