Go Back


FORT DRUM, NY – JUNE 28, 2019: The 2019 AmeriCU Salute to the Troops Tribute Concert was held on June 20 as part of the Fort Drum Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s (FMWR) Mountainfest. The rain didn’t stop soldiers, their families, and residents of Fort Drum and Northern New York from arriving en masse for the celebration.

The annual concert is in thanks and support of the U.S. Army 10th Mountain Division and their families for their valiant service to our country. This year’s event, presented by AmeriCU for the eighth straight year, featured country music duo LOCASH with opening act Parmalee.

AmeriCU would like to thank the cooperation and generosity of our co-sponsors: Carthage Area Hospital, Fort Drum Mountain Community Homes, Kinney Drugs, Lockheed Martin, Martin’s Point, the USO, Waite Toyota, Wahl Media, Community Broadcasters, Lamar Advertising, and NBC Watertown for their support of this year’s event.
