The Northern New York – Fort Drum Chapter of AUSA is comprised of local businesses, organizations, civic leaders and soldiers who have joined together to become one voice – a voice dedicated to both the Army and the local community.

Today the Chapter’s ties include not only the 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum, but Army Reserve and National Guard units throughout upstate New York as well as a number of Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) detachments at North Country colleges and universities.
