FORT DRUM, New York (WWNY) - Soldiers stationed at Fort Drum are being asked to prepare for a potential deployment.

The Department of the Army made the announcement that soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division Headquarters stationed at Fort Drum are being asked to prepare to deploy to potentially help backfill units currently in Europe. That could include the most senior commander of the division, the division’s commander, MG Gregory Anderson.

The Army says this rapid deployment would ensure the United States continues to be well positioned to provide a robust deterrent and defensive posture alongside our Allies across the European continent.

“The 10th Mountain Division (Light) is proud to be called to go serve alongside our Allies. The Mountain Division is no stranger to deployments across the globe. Our formations are trained, ready, and prepared,” said Maj. Gen. Gregory K. Anderson, commander of the 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum.
