The North Country Honors the Mountain

Thompson Park Watertown, New York 

The North Country Honors the Mountain monument was designed, built and unveiled on July 1, 2016 by the North Country community as an enduring statement of the community’s gratitude for the sacrifice and service of the 10th Mountain Division’s Soldiers, their Family Members and the Fort Drum Civilian Work Force.  Since its reactivation at Fort Drum in 1985, the 10th Mountain Division has been the most deployed unit in the US Army. The monument stands as a lasting tribute to the Division’s history and legacy for generations to come.

The Honor the Mountain Monument was built in Tower Square, the center-piece of historic and beautiful Thompson Park, a Fredrick Olmstead designed park, in Watertown, NY.  It is an important addition to the community and a visible reminder of the unique relationship the North Country community have with our military neighbors at Fort Drum.
