Here's the SARP schedule for the week! There are some storms in the forecast, so stay tuned to the Remind app for updates!
Welcome to the official page of the Soldier Recovery Unit, Fort Drum, New York. For more information phone 315-772-0416 or 315-772-7190. The 85th Mountain Infantry Regiment’s active service dates back to its activation as part of the 10th Mountain Division (Light) in August 1943 to its deactivation in November 1945 - both in Colorado.
The regiment trained for survival and combat in the winter mountain conditions in Colorado, Texas, and Virginia. Following this training, the Regiment deployed overseas at the end of 1944, arriving in Naples, Italy, on January 13, 1945. The Regiment joined the forces assembled to attack the German strongholds in the Apennines Mountains. In three major offensive attacks, with heavy casualties, these forces crossed the Apennines from south to north, entered and crossed the Po River valley, and effectively ended the war in Italy. The 3rd Battalion, 85th Mountain Infantry Regiment was reactivated on Fort Drum in April of 2007 in order to have 10th Mountain Division Soldiers serve in a historic regiment during their recovery. Currently the 3-85th MTN IN serves as the premier center for the treatment of Wounded, Ill, and Injured Soldiers across Fort Drum and the greater Northeast region.
Mission: 3-85th MTN IN (WTB) provides mission command, administrative support and services, quality prime care, and case management services for Soldiers qualifying as Soldiers in Transition; synchronizes and facilitates quality medical care, clinical care, disposition and transition of Soldiers qualifying as Soldiers in Transition to promote readiness to return to military duty or transition to Civilian life, all IAW the Army’s Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP).

Mountain Soldiers, there is new guidance that has just been approved for your reading pleasure. This is regarding hot items such as stop-move, ETPs, and travel restrictions. Please take a few moments to read this carefully.
1) What is the current stop-move policy?
Official travel restrictions remain in place for the following types of travel:
- Temporary Duty Travel (TDY)
- Government-funded leave travel
- Permanent Change of Station (PCS) travel
- All other types of official travel
- Personal leave outside the local area
- Non-official travel outside the local area
All movement requires an Exception to Policy (ETP) approved by the first general officer in a Soldier's Chain of Command.
2) Is there any travel that doesn't require an ETP?
Yes, the following list outlines exceptions to the restriction:
- Travel associated with recruiting / accessions activities (Refer to HQDA EXORD 144-20 FRAGO 27 Annex EEE - BCT, OSUT, AIT, WOCS, WOBC, OCS, BOLC, Initial Entry Rotary Wing Courses, and direct commission courses)
- Global force management activities (deployments/redeployments)
- Travel by personnel who departed their permanent duty station prior to stop-move
- Travel by personnel who were TDY prior to stop-move and TDY will end while stop move is in effect
- Travel by military and civilian personnel pending retirement or separation (SM's are authorized to take leave associated with transition leave)
- Travel to/from Professional Military Education Programs (Refer to HQDA EXORD 144-20 FRAGO 27 Annex EEE and G3/S3 Schools for specific PME courses)
3) Will the restrictions be lifted?
The Army continues to identify installations that meet the criteria to lift restrictions. As conditions improve, the Army will continue to reevaluate the need for restrictions.
Please ensure Soldiers work with their chain of command and personnel sections for questions regarding policy exemptions and procedures.
