Fort Drum, Home of the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), located in northern New York's picturesque North Country. The installation is in the middle of one of the most historically unique and geographically beautiful areas of the United States. Fort Drum is approximately 30 miles from Canada, with the Great Lakes to the west, the Adirondack Mountains to the east, and the St. Lawrence River and the Thousand Islands in between. The 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band was originally constituted in the Army of the United States as the 505th Coast Artillery Band on 13 April 1942. This band was activated on 20 June 1942 at Camp Edwards, Massachusetts. It was later reorganized and redesignated as the Army Ground Forces Band on 27 June 1944, relocating to Italy only to be inactivated the following year, 25 September 1945. The band would later be redesignated twice thereafter. First, as the 232nd Army Band on 17 May 1947 and then again as the 10th Infantry Division Band on 18 June 1948. This unit was allotted to the Regular Army on 25 June 1948 and activated on 1 July that same year at Fort Riley, Kansas. The band would be relocated yet again, this time to Fort Benning, Georgia where it was later inactivated on 14 June 1958. Another period of redesignation took place on 3 November 1987 whereby the band received its current name as the 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band. In addition, the band was relocated to Fort Drum, New York. The 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band earned World War II campaign credit for service in Italy, was deployed to Florida for Hurricane Andrew Relief (1993), to Haiti for Operation Uphold Democracy (1994-1995), and supported Ice Crisis in 1998, performing for ice storm victims and relief volunteers throughout northern New York. In the winter of 1999-2000 the band deployed to Bosnia-Herzegovina in support of Operation Joint Forge performing holiday music for US troops as well as the local Bosnian people. In February 2002 the band deployed to Kosovo in support of Operation KFOR, performing for troops and civilians in the towns of Cernica and Ponces, Kosovo. A portion of the band deployed to Afghanistan in 2003 to support Operation Enduring Freedom. The 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band was deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom VII in January of 2006, and again in October of 2010. During both deployments, the band provided musical support not only for U.S. forces but also for International Security and Assistance Forces (ISAF) throughout the Afghani Theater. During their support of OEF VII, twenty members of the 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band were deployed to Muzzaffarabad, Kashmir (Pakistan). Those twenty soldiers performed as a Force Protection team for humanitarian workers supporting relief efforts in response to the earthquake that rocked the area on October 8th, 2005. The 10th Mountain Division (LI) Band was also deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom VI in May of 2008. While deployed, the band supported ceremonies, and was instrumental in maintaining soldier readiness by improving troop morale through music.
Mission: "Army Bands provide music throughout the spectrum of military operations to instill in our soldiers the will to fight and win, foster the support of our citizens, and promote our national interests at home and abroad."

“This operation is not being planned with any alternatives. This operation is planned as a victory, and that’s the way it’s going to be. We’re going down there, and we’re throwing everything we have into it, and we’re going to make it a success.”
- Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Never in history has the Navy landed the Army at the planned time and place. But if you land us anywhere within 50 miles of Fedela and within one week of D-Day, I’ll go ahead and win.”
- George S. Patton
This #DDay, we salute the indomitable spirit and force of will that the greatest generation showed decades ago.

“To Army leaders of all ranks, listen to your people, but don’t wait for them to come to you. Go to them. Ask the uncomfortable questions. Lead with compassion and humility, and create an environment in which people feel comfortable expressing grievances. Let us be the first to set the example. We are listening. And we will continue to put people first as long as we are leading the Army. Because people are our greatest strength.”
A message to the Army community about civil unrest
This #MemorialDay, we honor the brave men and women who have sacrificed everything in service to the uniforms they have worn, the country they have served, and the brothers and sisters who have served next to them.
This rendition of “Taps” is arranged by USAF Master Sgt. (retired) Jari Villanueva, and performed by #MountainSound‘s own Staff Sgt. Pat McGee. We hope everyone has had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend, and we ask that you take a moment to commemorate those who have served.
As we move into Memorial Day weekend, we take time to honor those military veterans who have given their lives in service of this country.
Please share this tribute to the fallen from the US Army Trumpet Ensemble, including our own Staff Sgt. Patrick McGee.

Happy Friday, Fort Drum! See below for your post updates!
Good morning everyone, happy Friday! A quick note about the Main PX barber shop. We’ve gotten some feedback about how difficult it is to get through to the appointment line when the shop opens at 9:30. Staff members are working diligently to speak with as many customers as possible but there are a limited number of appointments and a whole lot of people who want haircuts. If you call and get a busy signal please keep trying. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work through this slow roll back to something that sort of resembles normal.
Fort Drum FMWR has another Friday Freebie for everyone today. Drive by the upper parking lot at Magrath Sports Complex from 4 – 5 p.m. to pick up an adult’s arts and crafts kit! Please be sure to bring a valid DoD ID card while picking up. Must be wearing a mask and remain in your vehicle at all times. See the flyer in the comments for all the details.
Also, if you’re looking for something to do there’s an outdoor photo scavenger hunt kicking off Monday, May 18, FMWR’s Quest for Treasure. Find all the details and learn more about the prize on their event page: https://bit.ly/2zFQduF
No big service updates or changes to announce today. For the latest hours and operating procedures see the “Services Status” section below. If you have any questions please drop them in the comments and we’ll work to get the answer.
- Reporting Status -
Mission Required Personnel Only
Please speak with your chain of command/supervisor to determine whether or not you are considered mission required and for further guidance.
- Gate Information -
WSAAF Gate: OPEN to all patrons with valid ID cards and passes (no Trusted Traveler) during the hours of 5:30 am – 10:00 pm. The gate will be closed during DONSAs, weekends and holidays.
Cerjan Gate: OPEN
Gas Alley Gate: OPEN
Mount Belvedere Gate: OPEN to DoD ID Holders ONLY; Non DoD ID holders attempting to access the installation through Mount Belvedere ACP (i.e contractors, personnel with an approved visitors pass or local access badge) will be turned away and asked to proceed to LTG Paul Cerjan or Gas Alley gates. As the Trusted Traveller program is still suspended, this includes personnel traveling with a DoD ID card holder (i.e. visitor's pass holder, local access badge holder, Taxi/Uber/Lyft transporting DoD ID holders). These individuals will be turned around and directed to LTG Paul Cerjan or Gas Alley gates due to medical screening requirements.
The Cerjan and Gas Alley Access Control Points will have designated lanes for DOD ID card holders and Non-DOD ID card holders. Please look out for those signs and enter the appropriate lane.
Those seeking admittance to post will be required to submit to a verbal screening: Have you traveled outside of 60 miles from Fort Drum?
Those who answer yes will be provided further guidance by the gate guard on duty. If it is determined that the individual is at risk and they have official business on Fort Drum, they will be directed to the proper military treatment facility for further evaluation. Individuals that exhibit any symptoms due to allergies will be allowed onto post.
Individuals returning to Fort Drum from an off-post medical appointment should inform the medical screener at the gate that you are returning to your on post residence from a medical appointment.
No one who has a requirement to access the installation for essential services (PX, Commissary, emergency services) will be turned away from the installation. This includes Soldiers/dependents living on post, Soldiers/dependents living off post who are seeking medical care on post, DOD ID card holders (Active duty military, DA Civilians, and dependents) and retirees and eligible family members.
Individuals at risk that do not have official business on Fort Drum will be advised to seek further medical evaluation at an off post medical facility.
The Trusted Traveler program is suspended. Visitors with a bona fide need to enter post will need to go to the Visitor Control Center (Cerjan Access Control Point) during normal business hours from 5:30am – 10pm, where they will submit to background checks and screening.
All visitor passes must be resubmitted through the Soldier’s Chain of Command. Anyone wishing to have a visitor on post who is traveling from more than 60 miles away will need to submit both a completed visitor request memo and an application for sponsorship to the Physical Security Office. You can find an example memo here: https://bit.ly/2wDPdGk It should be completed by your unit prior to submission. You can find the application for sponsorship here: https://bit.ly/3auItcf Completed forms can be submitted to [email protected] (preferred method) in advance or at the VCC in person during normal operating hours.
Retirees and beneficiaries must go through medical screening before entering post.
Contractors and other service providers should seek clarification for Fort Drum access from their supervisors.
Delivery drivers who weren’t vetted for access prior to the pandemic will be directed to the Visitor Control Center at the Cerjan Gate. There they will need to submit to background check and show proof of their delivery requirement and if all is in order, they’ll be allowed access to make the delivery. If, for any reason the delivery driver does not pass the background check, customers will need to pick up their anticipated delivery at the VCC.
Taxis, Uber and Lyft drivers that were vetted to operate on Fort Drum will now be allowed to bring DoD ID card and Local Access Badge holders onto post for drop-off purposes only. After dropping off the fare, they must immediately leave post and will not be allowed to pick up additional fares while on post. It is suggested that individuals looking to use these services to get onto post ask their drivers if they have approved access to the installation prior to accepting the ride and incurring a fee.
Taxi drivers who do not already have pre-vetted access will be given one-time access to post to drop off their riders if they submit to and successfully clear backgrounds checks and their riders are in possession of DOD ID/LAB holders and/or an Exception to Policy as necessary (ie. greater than 40 miles of travel). Riders should expect to pay an increased fare based on the time it takes for an un-vetted driver to submit to the background checks/gain entry to post. Riders can choose to be dropped off at the Visitor Control Center and picked up by a DOD ID cardholder if the driver does not have access to post.
Riders who have an ETP to access post (GS14+/O5+ approved bona fide need to enter post) but do not have a DoD ID/LAB card must submit to background checks (and successfully clear) prior to entry to post via any of these services.
Visitors without a valid ETP are NOT permitted. Anyone accessing post via a taxi/Uber/Lyft must have the following based on the nature of the access request:
1. DOD ID CARD/Local Access Badge/ Valid ID and, if applicable, one of the below:
a. Valid ETP if traveled outside of 60 miles
b. Valid ETP by a GS 14/O5 or higher with Command authority if not in possession of a DOD ID Card/LAB (Personnel are required to have a background check prior to entry, personnel arriving by taxi will be granted a day pass in order to link up with sponsor and complete the escort process).

Wear of Masks:
Masks are required to be worn in all public spaces where a distance of 6 feet or more between individuals cannot be maintained. This also applies to the PX and Commissary. Customers must be wearing a mask/face covering to enter and they will not be provided at the door so please ensure you bring one with you.
• Soldiers are authorized to wear the neck gaiter and other cloth items, such as bandannas and scarves, as face coverings. This guidance applies for both indoors and outdoors as well as while in uniform. Everyone will use good judgment in choosing a mask or cloth face covering.
• Service members will not wear masks or cloth face coverings that have profanity, racist, demeaning or derogatory logos, script or imagery.
• The medical white and light blue type / style mask is authorized with all uniforms.
• Cloth masks or face coverings should be washed daily.
• Do not wear the N95 respirator mask. It should be reserved for our medical personnel.
• Do not wear high altitude training masks in uniform.
Remember – the mask is not to protect you from getting the virus, it is to protect the spread of the virus as you may be asymptomatic and not know that you have the disease. You can find the full DoD memo here: https://bit.ly/2X9C6aF If you have any questions about the wearing of face coverings within your unit or workplace, please reach out to your chain of command or supervisor.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order requiring all individuals to wear face masks when in public and unable to maintain a distance of 6 feet or more from others. So remember to bring your mask if you’re headed off post
