WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - It has been a message Fort Drum brass has been hitting hard lately: suicide prevention and awareness.

This week, 10th Mountain Division soldiers are doing a series of hikes in support of that message.

On Tuesday, 100 soldiers strapped with snowshoes and ruck sacks trekked 5-and-a-half miles from the Fort Drum Museum to the Black River Trail.
