Change of command on Fort Drum
Fort Drum -- The new leader of the 10th Mountain Division will be taking over sooner rather than later.
Days after it was announced that outgoing commander Maj. Gen. Mark Milley would be receiving a promotion and heading to Ft. Hood, TX, a change in command ceremony is scheduled for next Monday. Taking over command duties at the local base will be Maj. Gen. Stephen Townsend. Townsend recently served in Washington, DC and has been at Ft. Drum in the past.
The change in command will be Monday morning at 10 am
