Fort Drum helicopter unit is in position to help with storm recovery

Members of an Army helicopter unit based at Fort Drum in northern New York are now in position to help with storm recovery efforts in the Northeast.

Officials with the 10th Mountain Division say eight Black Hawk helicopters in the division's Combat Aviation Brigade left Wednesday morning for Hanscom Air Force Base, located outside Boston, Mass.

Division officials say the maneuver puts the helicopters and their crews in better for possible storm relief support in areas devastated by Sandy earlier this week.
