He was a United States Army Psychological Operational Soldier, working on a tactical team in Iraq, when it happened. He was the only one to survive. Drake is still receiving Hippo-therapy treatment - funded by the Wounded Warrior Projects agency. Drake lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan and was the guest of honor at the WWAST dinner/fundraiser.
