      Ft. Drum statue knocked off pedestal by high winds

      The 10th Mountain Division statue at Ft. Drum knocked down by a wind-swept tent. No major damages.

      Fort Drum's 'Climb to Glory' statue, honoring the 10th Mountain Division, was knocked off its pedestal on Wednesday night.

      The high winds sent a tent being put up for Veterans Day ceremonies into the 18-hundred pound sculpture, knocking it into a bed of mulch.

      The statue has only minor damage because of the soft landing, and should be back up in about a week.
