Fort Drum is home to the 10th Mountain Division and is located in Jefferson County, New York. The primary mission of the 10th Mountain division is the command of the active units assigned to the base, providing support to all the tenant units as well as supporting over 80,000 troops that are deployed annually. On post housing is more difficult to obtain at Fort Drum as the population grows. The availability of off-post housing is more plentiful with single family dwellings, duplexes, and townhomes. The Fort Drum Community Homes office is responsible for managing over 2,500 homes on post as well as a list of available homes for rent and sale off base. Military personnel are advised to check in at the Fort Drum Welcome Home Center located in Clark Hall, Building P-10720.
