An official with the Department of Defense confirmed Monday that the loss of 150 Dyncorp International civilian contractor jobs at Fort Drum is the result of troop drawdowns overseas.

Those jobs will be cut from the Army Aviation Reset Program at the post, which overhauls Black Hawk helicopters returning from Afghanistan.

Daniel J. Oboyle, Public Affairs Media Chief at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., said via e-mail, “The decision to end Reset operations at Fort Drum was driven by a need to reduce the overall maintenance footprint. This is an inevitable consequence of the reduced Reset workload and drawdown of Operation Enduring Forces.”
