Former Fort Drum garrison commander, Terrence R. Roche, was inducted Tuesday into the state Veterans Hall of Fame. The retired colonel was selected for the hall by state Sen. Patricia A. Ritchie, R-Heuvelton.

In the position when the 10th Mountain Division was assigned to Fort Drum, Mr. Roche received praise for helping spur the post’s growth.

“Col. Roche represents Fort Drum — its soldiers, their families, the sacrifice and the post itself for the tremendous impact it has on the region’s economy,” Sen. Ritchie said in an emailed statement.

Mr. Roche, who served in the Army for 26 years, is active in several community organizations.
