Watch: At Fort Drum, Salute to The Nation
Major General Stephen Townsend, the 10th Mountain Division's commanding general, hailed the division's history of "selfless service to our nation," during the annual Salute to the Nation ceremony on post Wednesday night.
The general noted the long work of the division in Afghanistan, and said it was prepared for future conflicts.
"As the history of this great division bears witness, I do not think it will be very long before to the nation calls on the 10th Mountain Division again."
The ceremony was part of Mountainfest, which also included a concert and fireworks display, and earlier in the day, games and food for thousands of soldiers and their families.
