The 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum are constantly engaged with the community surrounding the North Country Army base. They also have a robust relationship with their Canadian counterparts of all ages. The division frequently hosts and participates in joint training ventures with the Canadian Army, but March 13-17 they hosted a slightly younger crowd.
Maj. Gen. Jeffrey L. Bannister, Commander of the 10th Mountain Division met with Maj. Gen. Troy D. Kok, Commander of the 99th Regional Support Command headquartered at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst to discuss Reservist facilities on Fort Drum as well as opportunities for mutual support and future training between the 10th MTN DIV and the U.S Army Reserve Feb. 8 at Hays Hall on post.
Soldiers stationed at Fort Drum and across the Army with a fiscal year 2017 expiration-term of service date on or before Sep. 30 can now receive a minimum $10,000 bonus incentive to extend or reenlist regardless of Military Occupational Specialty.
