U.S. Army Fort Drum & 10th Mountain Division

Fort Drum General Order 1E is now in effect and that means a few changes in operations moving forward so let’s map it all out. (The pun was intentional. Forgive us. It’s been a long 2020.) Also, the command team will be holding a live town hall this Thursday, July 16 at 12 noon here on the page to discuss the entire order and answer all your questions. Please join us for that!

- Travel Impacts -
The most significant change is the extension of the local travel area to a 350-mile radius. Travel within this new local travel area does not require any additional approval for those on regular pass. There are however, still restricted areas as noted in red on the map and we’re gonna go ahead and list them all: Albany County, NY; Erie County, NY; Monroe County, NY; New York City; Oneida County, NY; Onondaga County, NY; Hampden County, MA; Suffolk County, MA; Essex County, NJ; Allegheny County, PA; Philadelphia County, PA; Cuyahoga County, OH; Baltimore County, MD; Prince George County, MD; Arlington County, VA; Fairfax County, VA; Prince William County, VA; State of Delaware, Washington D.C. and Canada. Service Members may drive through these off-limits areas travelling to another destination but may not visit any destinations within those counties or states listed.

In order to travel to unrestricted areas outside of the 350-mile local travel area, Soldiers must possess a DA-31 approved by the first 0-3 in their chain of command. Travel to restricted areas must still be approved at the 0-6 level.

Soldiers are not authorized to use commercial air, train, bus or other public transportation for their travel unless approved by an O-3 commander. Taxicabs and other car services may be used within the local travel area.

Please be aware that other states and counties may have their own restrictions and requirements in place for travelers. Know what’s required before you leave. Soldiers are strongly discouraged from committing funds to travel before they have an approved DA-31.

Traveling to areas found on the NYS List of Restricted States (https://on.ny.gov/2WkwPvz) or the CDC’s Travel Recommendations list (https://bit.ly/2Cy8aNa) will automatically require a 14-day quarantine upon your return to New York State.

- Visitors -
The trusted traveler program remains suspended at this time. Visitors who have a DoD ID card or a Fort Drum local access badge may enter the installation providing they have not traveled outside of the 350-mile radius or to one of the off-limits counties.

Visitors without a DoD ID card must have sponsorship approval in the form of an Exception to Policy (ETP) to gain access to the installation. This approval happens at the first O-5 or GS equivalent in your chain of command. All other visitor requests must be approved by the Garrison Commander.

Soldiers must submit a DA-31 to the first O-3 in their chain and obtain approval to meet or reside with any non-local visitor (from outside of the 350-mile radius) or geographically separated dependent or family member outside of the installation.

- PCS/TDY Travel -
PCS and TDY Travel are now broken down into four categories:
Unrestricted Travel indicates that the origin, destination and all intermediate stops of your travel itinerary are designated as unrestricted locations. The unit must confirm that all locations continue to be unrestricted no more than 10 days before the travel is to start. If any of the locations have changed category to restricted, travel will then require a waiver to be requested and approved.

Restricted Travel requires travelers to receive an approved ETP prior to the PCS or TDY as any one of the origin, destination or intermediate stop locations are designated as restricted.

Waivered Travel means you’ve requested and received an ETP and your PCS/TDY has been deemed necessary. This can be the case for extreme hardship, humanitarian reasons or in support of the mission. G1 will continue to coordinate and validate these requests and route to the first General Officer in a Soldier’s chain for approval.

Exempted Travel is PCS/TDY that does not require a waiver. This exemption will be indicated on orders or in a memo that travelers must carry with them. Some examples of Exempted Travel include: travel for Soldiers/DA Civilians pending retirement, separations or release from Active Duty. Also included is travel by patients and medical providers as well as their attendants and escorts; travel to and from professional military programs and travel for Global Force Management activities.

You can find all of this information fully broken down in General Order 1E on our website here: https://bit.ly/3gTrPpq

Please remember that the wear of masks is still required anytime you cannot maintain a distance of six feet or more in all public facilities. Also ensure you continue to comply with state requirements by wearing your mask over your mouth and nose when off post in an area where you cannot maintain a safe social distance.

We’ll continue to share the latest updates here and on our website: home.army.mil/drum

Team, a screening center has been established by CTMC if you’re exhibiting respiratory symptoms instead of going to an off post hospital.

Mountain Soldiers, here's an important update to check out:
The MEDDAC and Division Surgeon team has established a 24/7 central screening location outside of the Connor Troop Medical Clinic for active-duty service members.
Those who are experiencing respiratory symptoms will report to this location for screening in lieu of going to an off-post emergency room or urgent care.

Today was the biggest meal of the year for Army dining facilities and the Freedom Fighter Café and Muleskinner Inn knocked it out of the park. This year Freedom Fighter went with an 80's theme while Muleskinner celebrated a traditional Autumn season. Great job Griffins! We hope everyone has a fun and safe Thanksgiving meal this coming weekend.
