Our View: Fort Polk meets the need, as always
Fort Polk Soldiers ready to deploy
Fort Drum's Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers took 15 troops to participate in the annual Patriot Golf Day at Lakeview Golf and Country Club in Auburn on Monday.
Exactly one third of the fourth grade students at Faith Training Christian Academy, where the mascot, quite fittingly, is the Patriot, will have parents deployed to Afghanistan this month with the 4th Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, or the Patriot Brigade.
On Thursday, 75 men and women of the 10th Mountain Division aviation unit, 6th Squadron, 6th Cavalry, earned their spurs and, on Friday, extended the tradition to 35 spouses as a means to build cohesion before the unit begins a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan within a month.
