Description
Two servicemen with Japan Logistical Command pose for a photo in or near Camp Drake. After arriving in Yokohama, Williams spent a short period at Camp Drake in Osaka, about 15 miles northwest of Tokyo. This photo is part of a series documenting Williams’ shipping out to Korea. The journey started in Pittsburg, California (Camp Stoneman), where a ferry carried troops to San Francisco for embarkation to Japan, and on to Korea. The bulk of the journey took place on the USS General M. C. Meigs Navy transport ship, which sailed from San Francisco to Yokohama, Japan between January 14th and 28th, 1952.
