Fort Drum, originally named Pine Camp, has been used as a military training site since 1908. During World War II the camp, renamed Camp Drum, was massively expanded. Workers constructed 240 barracks, 84 mess halls, 86 storehouses, 58 warehouses, 27 officers’ quarters, 22 headquarters buildings, 99 recreational buildings, a hospital and numerous guardhouses. In 1985, the Army activated the 10th Mountain Division after selecting Fort Drum as the division’s new home during the previous year. The 10th Mountain Division is trained for rapid deployment by land, sea or air. Fort Drum was outfitted with additional barracks to house an additional 5,000 troops who arrived at the base by the end of 2004. World War II-era buildings are also being renovated to be better able to handle the increased number of personnel. The development, construction and management of 554 single family, duplex homes for the Fort Drum Army Base were under way in 2009. The project is expected to cost approximately $184 million, including $75 million in additional

84

federal government equity contributions granted by Congress. It’s expected to be complete by July 2011. � What’s new: Fort Drum is a prominent fiber in the fabric of the Northern New York community. The installation provides employment for more than 4,000 area residents and millions of dollars in trade for local businesses. Soldiers and their family members receive medical care from local health care providers and enroll in local schools and colleges. Staunch community support by way of programs such as Project Strong Communities and Operation Yellow Ribbon further connect our military and civilian communities. The resulting economic and social impact benefits not only Northern New York, but New York State as a whole. In April 2010, Fort Drum Deputy to the Garrison Commander, Judith L. Gentner, was awarded the Decoration for Exceptional Civilian Service. In May 2010, Fort Drum brought home its first Army Communities of Excellence Award under the category of exemplary practices for transforming the way soldiers in the field treat culturally sensitive places such as religious sites, historical places and ruins. In June 2010, Fort Drum officially opened its new meditation labyrinth.
