New monument honoring lost soldiers to be dedicated at Fort Drum

A new monument honoring the 10th Mountain Division's lost soldiers is set to be dedicated at Fort Drum in northern New York.

The Fallen Warrior Monument to be unveiled Tuesday was paid for with a gift from the post's workforce.

The new monument by artist Susan Grant Raymond features a group of soldiers standing to honor a fallen comrade and two soldiers on patrol extending a hand to a child. Together, they commemorate the deaths and represent hope for the future.

The 10th has seen heavy action from World War II to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
