You'd be surprised how much Fort Drum is propping up the economy in Gouverneur. It's not just the soldiers and their families. It's all the contractors and other direct and indirect benefits of billions of dollars in federal money circulating in the local economy. It may not have a huge impact, but there will be an impact and it won't be positive.

Watertown will take the hardest hit, if the paper mill or cives close down that would be a harder hit to gouverneur then drum.
