Who are you remembering today?

On this Memorial Day I remember the following Paratroopers, who gave the last full measure of devotion...

SGT Blaine A. Mishak; October 29, 1992
MAJ Edward J. Murphy; April 6, 2005
SSG Damion G. Campbell; August 26, 2005
MAJ Thomas G. Bostick Jr; July 27, 2007
1SG Russell R. Bell; August 2, 2012

...and the countless others who lost their lives in service to our great Nation in combat, peace, and training...

"...that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

A great opportunity and professionally developing, as it’s critical to understand the industrial base and how they enable the warfighter. It also provided a tangible look at the Arsenal workers’ potential hazards and exposures served by our Fort Drum Medical Activity Occupational Health and Industrial Hygiene clinic staff.

I just wanted to post to thank the Ft Drum Pharmacy for effectively saving my life. I am on several drugs to control heart rate and was about to get bone marrow specimen draw for a different issue. The doctor doing the draw gave me a script for an anti-anxiety drug,hydrOXYzine HCL, and when I came to pick it up there was a note on the bottle to check with my heart doctor the combination with one of the heart meds “can cause QT prolongation.” I did check and was told it would be better not to take the HCL because the risk to my health would be higher than the discomfort of the procedure. With out the note I would not have known any of this. There was no name or identifier on the note so I will thank all our the pharmacy personnel for this. I also want to thank you for the quick installation of the pharmacy pick up changes due to COVID. The system works great , everyone involved is helpfu and friendly. Special thanks to the soldiers that make the numerous walks back and forth delivering the packages. Thank you all for everything you do to keep us safe and healthy. The bone marrow draw went fine and was completely painless with out and drugs.
Happy Holidays from the OB/GYN clinic 🌲
I would like to say that I am very happy with our command team. You have all been amazingly receptive and easy to approach. It’s always a pleasure to talk with you. After close to 15 years at Fort Drum I must say You help us put the care in care enough to make a difference. Keep up the good work.
