It is Gods honest truth. Ft. Drum has Effed up the Thousand Islands. Every day now during the summer it's nothing but black helicopters flying over head. Not to mention all the hideous track housing being built around A-bay. All the locals wonder why tourism is down. It's not just the economy. Fact is not many people want to go on vacation in a place with a bunch of Black Hawks flying over head and a huge military base. The rural rustic qualities are being destroyed because of Ft. Drum. Sorry soldiers I don't really have much personal beef with you personally, but Ft.Drum sucks. Should have never been put in such a rural and wonderful area.

LMAO..... Effing jerk-off drummies ruining the place acting like they own it.. Funny how many of you guy's wanna get drunk in A-Bay and run your mouths and get knocked out by a local? You guy's think your tuff (and many of ya are) but you gotta realize. We stay here, you guy's come and go, we've been getting into with soldiers our whole lives. So we've been scrapping with soldiers over and over again. It's nothing new to us. Think about it, if a soldiers are such badasses, what are the guy's who been getting into fight's with them all the time for 10 years?? We are trained to knock your asses out when you start disrespecting are locals..Stop causing trouble and show a little respect for the area and the people.
Not all of y'all but still too many. That said, I've also met some awesome guy's and gals from Ft. Drum who even after discharge I've stayed in contact with. Some I wish I was able to.
Ultimately it's not even the soldiers themselves that are ruining the area. We produce douch bags ourselves. So can't say they are all Drummie's.... It's all the development that it brings. All the destroyed land... Once rural backwoods area is becoming the suburbs. It's the development that really sucks.

If it wasn't for Fort Drum there would be nothing in that area at all and a lot of civilians wouldn't have jobs.
