"A group of North Country citizens have formed a committee to build a monument honoring the sacrifice and service of the Soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division, the Fort Drum Civilian Workforce and to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the reactivation of the division in 1985 and the 70th anniversary of the Allies victory in Second World War in which the 10th Mountain Division played a significant part through its campaign in Italy in 1945. The City of Watertown, NY has graciously donated the city's premier location for us to erect this monument: Tower Square in Thompson Park, an Olmstead designed park (designer of Central Park in NYC). It is our intent to restore Tower Square to its former glory and make it the crown jewel and centerpiece of the park. This monument will be a fitting tribute to the men and women of the 10th Mountain Division who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms. The committee plans to unveil the monument in July 2016.
