500 Sign Petition Supporting Fort Drum
The community push to support Fort Drum is officially underway.
The Fort Drum Regional Liaison Organization collected signatures at last week's concert at Thompson Park and online.
So far, about 500 people have signed.
Officials say 300 people signed at the park, 180 signed the online petition and the rest were collected by other sources.
The petition was launched because the military is studying what would happen if it cut 16,000 soldiers and civilians From Drum.
The easiest way for you to show your support is to sign the online petition.
Signatures will be collected throughout the summer.
