Syslog missing date time

Hi, I am trying out nxlog (versus running a linux VM for syslog collection) and I my configuration works.
However, the nxlog file does not include the date time for each log entry.
I have experimented with bsd versus item with no change in result.
I read the manual but I am not seeing why nxlog would strip the date time form the received log message.
I am trying to figure out how to retain the date time values for each log line.
