Comments: Where would anyone find info relative to 11th Abn Jump Injuries entering the -local - probably the 172 Station Hospital from early 1947 through 1949. Where would the medical records be currently archived? Any rosters of personnel, nurses serving at this hospital during this time period. My broither, Reginald Revere Barden, 11th Abn Div, 75 MM Howitzer PAFB was very seriously injured in a pay jump during this period, and I led to believe there were many other serious injuries in that pay jump. Available records indicate he NEVER existed in the 11th Abn division and was NOT a jumper. After a long recovery he was re-trained as a Mess Supervisor and re-assigned to the Saitama Military Defense Team. Also interested in possible companion, Lewis H Barden Jr from Pittsfield, Maine who probably also served with him at the same time in the 11th Abn. He was deceased on 27 Jun 1949 (I am assuming from serious injuries that occurred in that same pay jump). Anybody with knowledge of location of morning reports for that period or any other information would be helpful.

Comments: My brother served with the 11th Airborne from late 1947 thru at
least most of 1948. He was seriously injured in his last jump and
was hospitalized in the Sendai area (I guess) for several weeks.
Just curious if anyone recalls him being in the hospital. Reginald
Revere Barden. I recall him stating that there were MANY injuries
in a low altitude jump and bad weather predictions. Anyone know
where to find 11th Airborne Unit History for this time period. He
may have been transfered to the hospital near Zama (? or elsewhere?)

Comments: I was born at the 172nd Station Hospital in Sendai on 5/7/49. My father was an Army 1st Lieutenant in CIC, primary MOS Japanese linguist and interrogator.

The earthquake and tsunami have made me curious where the hospital was, whether it's still there, and how that area is doing in general.

Growing up, I was told that the hospital building had been a German consulate. But my mother also told me that thunder came from clouds colliding.

Comments: Planning to revisit Sendai this July and hope the 8166th USA hospital is
still there. Does anyone know? I had a medical M.O.S.[orthopedic tech]
and worked at the hospital but was never a patient there. My memory
tells me that I was told the building was constructed by the Germans and
was on roller bearings in hopes of minimizing damage by earthquakes.
Never knew it was used by the postal service. Is this the same as the
172nd Sta. Hospital? Good luck guys in all your searches.

Comments: I'm working in the archives at Central Washington University and have just received a book called the Seven Story Mountain by Thomas Merton from the Thorp (Washington) Historical Society with a stamp in the back that says "Property of U.S. Army, Hospital Library, 172nd Station Hospital, A.P.O. 547." It looks like the book was checked out heavily from 1950 to 1952. It also looks like the book was fire damaged. I'm interested in learning more about the hospital and if anyone had any experiences with the library there.

Comments: I was stationed in Camp Sendai, Camp Schimmelpfennig (Schimm) from 1954 - 1956. While at Camp Sendai I was taken to the Army hospital downtown for a kidney stone attack. I spent several days there. The building itself was the Japanese Postal (Employees) Insurance Building and I have photos of it then. The US Army took over the building and it was used as a headquarters building and a hospital until it was returned to the original owners. It is still standing and has been completely remodeled. I have a number of photos of it before and after as well as photos of people stationed there. They are on my website about Sendai. Go to www.sendai-shi.com to see them. Will also display your photos with your name if you are interested. Just follow the submission guidelines on my website.

Station Hospital was a japanese postal insurance building. The building now belongs to the Japanese and is completely renovated. The building was returned to the original owners. The building in 1945 was the only suitable building for 9th Corp. Headquarters, Because Sendai Was flattened by our b-17s and b-29s. Go to abe lincolns, Sendai-Shi.

Then I found positive evidence that in 1954 The same building became the8166th. Army Hospital Then in 1956 the same building was the 11th. Evacuation Hospital. So the 172nd. Sta. Hosp.
