The Community Relations Branch coordinates requests for military support of patriotic or community-wide celebrations in communities from Pennsylvania to Maine.
Military Support for Community Events:
- Color Guard, Equipment Displays, 10th Mountain Division Band
Tours of the installation for organizations (groups of more than 20) may be provided upon request depending upon availability of personnel. Tours may be scheduled to take place Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
A windshield tour lasts approximately one hour and is conducted from a bus (yours, or ours if available). The tour provides an external look at facilities and Soldier living areas. This tour is normally appropriate for adult organizations interested in the history and expansion of Fort Drum and its role in national defense.
For youth/school groups, a more customized visit may be provided based on the age of the group and the area of interest, with an overall goal of providing students with an up-close look at military equipment, uses of technology, and a chance to speak with Soldiers about their jobs.
Due to staffing and security requirements, request for tours must be submitted approximately 8 weeks in advance of the proposed date.
Request should include the name of the organization, number in the group (ages/grade level if students), and the time window available. Requests may be emailed to the address below.
