The 10th Mountain Division operated out of Fort Drum, New York observed a National Day of Mourning for President Bush. In honor of his life, the 10th Mountain Division’s field artillery regiment held a 21-gun salute at noon.

“He was the commander-in-chief so I think that’s just part of our history, part of tradition. We have to honor those presidents once they pass away so it’s a huge honor for our guys to do it.”
