One of the first chapters formed, SMGA-NY Adirondack has supported post 9-11 wounded and injured veterans living in Northern New York since 2011. This includes soldiers assigned to the 10th Mountain Division as well as all National Guard and Reserve Soldiers from the region who are receiving medical treatment at Ft Drum prior to being medically discharged for wounds & injuries sustained while on active duty. They traditionally run one summer program each year.
