Monument To Lost 10th Mountain Division Soldiers

FORT DRUM, N.Y. (AP) _ A new monument honoring the 10th Mountain Division's lost soldiers is set to be dedicated at Fort Drum.

The Fallen Warrior Monument to be unveiled Tuesday was paid for with a gift from the post's workforce.

The new monument features a group of soldiers standing to honor a fallen comrade and two soldiers on patrol extending a hand to a child. Together, they commemorate the deaths and represent hope for the future.

The 10th has seen heavy action from World War II to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
