"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.
Purchase an engraved paver today and preserve a place in history for yourself, family or friend and support the North Country Honors the Mountain monument. These pavers are gray to match the monument's color and will be placed in one of four areas around the base of the monument for all the visitors to see (see bottom of form for location selection). The pavers are 6"x 6" and can have up to four lines of text with 12 characters per line. Engraved letters will be weather resistant with proper letter case. Pavers will be installed at the monument twice each year: Fall and Spring. The cutoff date to order a paver for the fall installation is August 15 and the spring installation suspense is March 15.
