WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WHEC) — Troops from Fort Drum in Upstate New York are heading to Washington D.C.

The Department of Defense moved 1,600 soldiers to the D.C. area in response to the growing unrest and protests.


Currently, News10NBC is working to find out how many of those soldiers are from Fort Drum.

President Donald Trump said on Monday he'd use the military to stop the nationwide riots sparked by the death of George Floyd.
