Residents and community leaders from the area surrounding Fort Drum came out Friday evening to support the post. The Army is facing personnel cuts, and has to decide where those cuts will take place.
First, a rally was held at Jefferson County Community College. And then a "listening session" where high-level officials from the Army heard from members of the community about what Fort Drum means to the North Country.
The military has said that, at worst, Fort Drum could lose as many as 16,000 uniformed and civilian jobs.
