Any spouses located at Fort Drum?!?!

[deleted account] ( 23 moms have responded )

Having a newborn is tough already but also having to increase my social circle may be difficult as well. Are there wives at Fort Drum out there that I could connect with? With my husband recently deploying its harder to connect with the familes on post since most familes moved back to their home towns. If there are any Drum spouses out there, drop a line!! It would be great to connect!!

Hi Shaquoia, My name is Jessica. My husband and I have just moved here, but are originally from the area. I'm excited to meet new friends and especially those with Military ties.

Christine Carter...We are stationed at Fort Drum also. I have a 17 month old son. We used to live in Watertown but moved to Evans Mills which is about 2 miles from post. We live in Eagle Ridge Village Townhomes...almost brand new..a little bit pricey but really close to post and really nice inside and come with a washer and dryer (if you don't have one). Just thought I'd help out. Its a nice little apartment complex, I like it a lot.

Hi! I'm moving to FT Drum next month with my loving hubby and two kiddos (4 and 11 months - boys). Would love to make some connections before I get there! :-) If any of you have suggestions on areas to AVOID renting, that would be awesome! We're looking at off post housing since we have two parrots and they are considered "exotic pets" by the housing department. :-(

It seems like the moms who posted here dont have any "local contacts" as I don't being that I just moved from NYC to live in my house up here while my husband is deployed. I myself live off post so it's a little harder to network with other moms becuase of the weather, schedules, or many moms moved away during deployment. How would you moms propose that those looking to network get together (outside of montly FRG meetings) so that we don't feel so lost here?

Hi Ashley!! I know what its like to live in Gouverneur. My family and I just moved to Watertown and its like a different world. I'm still getting to know my way around Watertown/Drum. Where is your family from? Any kids? Maybe as it gets warmer we could get together for lunch or something.
