Photo Essay: Fort McCoy Equipment Park — January 2019

Story by Scott Sturkol on 02/08/2019

Snow can be seen covering equipment at Equipment Park at the Commemorative Area on Jan. 29, 2019, at Fort McCoy, Wis.

The Commemorative Area consists of five World War II-era buildings set aside to help tell Fort McCoy’s unique story.

These facilities are representative of the types found in the cantonment area when it was constructed in 1942.

The area also includes the History Center, Equipment Park, and the Veteran’s Memorial Plaza.

Located in the heart of the upper Midwest, Fort McCoy is the only U.S. Army installation in Wisconsin. The installation has provided support and facilities for the field and classroom training of more than 100,000 military personnel from all services each year since 1984.
