"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. Please visit our website at this link and see how you can support this project."
"Use of the song (Freedoms Gate - 10th Mountain Division)
was gifted to the National Association of the 10th Mt. Div.
by its composer and singer Mr. Scott J. Langille who was
inspired to write the song after watching our 10th Mt. Div.
Soldiers in combat on the evening news. Downloading and
unrestricted use is authorized and contributions to the 10th
Mt. Div. Scholarship Fund are encouraged."
