U.S. Senator Charles Schumer says that Ft. Drum will likely not see any significant cuts in the civilian work force as part of sequestration. According to the Syracuse Post-Standard, Schumer asked former 10th Mountain Division Commander Maj. Gen. Mark Milley at a recent meeting about potential civilian cuts at the post. Milley, who has been nominated as the next Army Chief of Staff, told Schumer that Drum remains in a strong position within the Army. Last week, the Army announced that only 28 soldiers in all will be cut from the local post, compared to thousands of troops that were being cut at other Army posts around the country.
