FYI

Anyone traveling in or around Fort Drum should be prepared for detours and delays the afternoon of Sunday, January 17, due to heightened security requirements in preparation for a high-profile visitor to the installation. If at all possible, avoid traveling around the area of the Wheeler Sack Army Airfield on Sunday.

Motorists should also anticipate the closure of Route 26 between Evans Mills and Great Bend and plan to use alternate routes for several hours of the afternoon and into the early evening. Emergency Vehicles will be allowed access to the road during the closure. The Wheeler Sack Army Airfield gate will be closed all weekend per the normal schedule. Additionally, the Gas Alley Access Control point on RT 26 will be closed to outgoing traffic during that time frame. Thank you for everyone's patience as our local law enforcement officials work to keep this area secure!

💳💳TIPS TO AVOID DAMAGING YOUR CREDIT💳💳

⏰ Never pay late-Lenders look for patterns of missed or late payments, and being even one day late on a payment could lower your credit score.

📈 Avoid maxing out your credit card-If possible, try to limit the amount owed to about 30 percent or less of your credit limit.

🤔 Carefully consider canceling cards, especially older accounts-Creditors like to see borrowers with long credit histories where they have paid on time, every time. The longer you have had a credit card and have made timely payments, the better.

⚖ Strike a balance between paper and plastic-Having a record of on-time payments for both revolving accounts and installment loans should help your credit score.

🚫 Do not apply for credit you do not need-The more credit inquiries or applications for credit that you have, the riskier you will seem to creditors, and that could also lower your credit score.

For more information on managing #credit, visit your local installation Family Resource Center and speak with a financial counselor today as our #service provided is completely FREE of charge.

The Fort Drum Thrift Shop has this great program to help children pick out those special Christmas gifts for their loved ones.

For kids looking to get presents for their families we have a new program running now. We have seen how much kids love to shop and give gifts they select themselves. We would like to offer a kids Holiday market at the thrift shop.

Kids can come into the thrift shop with a list they make on who they are shopping for and what kind of present they would like to get them. They bring that list into the shop and they will receive 50 percent off their purchases.

To be able to help them shop safely we are asking for families to make an appointment by emailing [email protected]. we are also offering free gift wrapping to help them be the best gift givers they can be.

Slots will fill up fast and there are limited slots available dependent on staffing and volunteers.

We are hoping this helps make this holiday season brighter for the kids in our community. Masks will be required.

GO1 violations are taken very seriously across the Division. Violations, both large and small, have resulted in serious consequences that could follow Soldiers for the rest of their careers. Violations can result in a range of consequences, from a Company Grade Article 15 to a Court-Martial. We've also provided a graphic on GO1F for more information. Let's make sure we look out for each other, abide by the General Order and stay safe!
