<h3 class="dark">Community Programs and Services</h3>
<h4>Adopt-a-10th Mountain Platoon</h4>
<p>Adopt-a-10th Mountain Platoon is designed to bring Soldiers and the local community together. Individuals and businesses volunteer to sponsor units deployed overseas from Fort Drum. Participants in the program send packages with letters, photos, magazines, personal care items, treats, and other things that may be difficult for them to find while deployed. The goal is to remind the Soldiers that the community back home is thinking of units and supporting their mission. A number of similar programs exist at installations across America.</p>

<h4>Fort Drum Regional Liaison Organization</h4>
<p>The Fort Drum Regional Liaison Organization (FDRLO) originated in 1990 as a community-based membership organization with the mission of preserving positive inter-relationships and communication between the civilian and military communities and leaders in the tri-county region of Northern New York State. Currently the FDRLO and Fort Drum are working together to prepare for the growth coming in the next few years - preparing to not only continue the community support for our Soldiers, but to increase the capability and the quality of that support.
