Mountain Division Commander Major General Stephen Townsend said the division will likely survive any upcoming military budget cuts, but nothing can be ruled out, adding that Operation Enduring Freedom will come to an end and a new mission, Operation Resolute Support, will begin in 2015. General Townsend stated that he was sure that the 10th Mountain Division will continue to be involved here in Afghanistan in the future mission. Fort Drum reportedly stands to lose about 1,500 soldiers from budget cuts and Townsend said there could be more, but he doesn't think it's likely, adding that the 10th Mountain Division and Fort Drum have a lot to offer the Army.
