Maj. Gen. Walter Piatt wanted to talk to the community about the 10 Mountain Division's current and upcoming missions, so he called Jefferson Community College.
JCC's Craig McNamara and Julie Halpin from Fort Drum Community Affairs explained on 7 News This Morning how that conversation ended with a community event scheduled for Friday.
Watch the video for their interview.
The talk will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 9 at Sturtz Theater at JCC.
Maj. Gen. Piatt will talk about Iraq's fight against ISIS and the role of the 10th Mountain Division as its headquarters plans to deploy there.
He'll also talk about the 4,000 troops deployed in several different countries across the globe.
The event is free and open to the public.
