Ft. Drum Barracks

Recommended Posts

Fort Drum Barracks in Wilmington in 1939. The barracks were used as a staging station for troops in transit during the Civil War. Camp Drum came into existence only because Camp Latham, which was the southern staging area for the war's California Volunteers, was rapidly becoming overcrowded. Established in late September 1861, Latham was situated on Ballona Creek in Rancho La Ballona where the present day intersections of Overland and Jefferson Boulevards are located in Culver City.

I was at the other Camp Drum for winter training in 69. It's in Upstate New York. Now called Fort Drum. Not nearly as nice.

One of the coldest places I've ever been!.

I thought Fort Drum was a concrete battleship/island in the mouth of Manila Bay.
