Early on in Gov. Andrew Cuomo's State of the State address, he took a few moments to thank the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division. The soldiers received the longest applause and the only standing ovation during his speech.
"The 10th Mountain Division is the most deployed force since 9-11. Just think about that -- 323 soldiers have been lost by the 10th Mountain Division defending our freedom," said the governor.
Cuomo called Fort Drum a great North Country asset.
