I would also be interested in knowing more about the history of Camp Drake. It was named in honor of my grandfather shortly after he was killed in the war, October 21, 1944.

My grandfather also jumped with a horse named King Hi, with the Army Equestrian Team. Any information on that would also be appreciated.

Comments: We were stationed at the Finance Bldg in Tokyo in the fall of 1953 until our transfer to Camp Zama. Our unit worked in the Far East Hdqs bldg.(Little Pentagon). Camp Zama was a very nice Army base only about 30 miles from Tokyo and even closer to Yokahama. This was a plush assignment for Army duty. The interesting thing about our jobs back then was if someone asked you what you did and you said you were an IBM operator,the typical response was What's IBM ?
