Garvey was one of several Fort McCoy military members supporting Independence Day events in local communities near the installation.
Staff Sgts. Anthony Cintron and Carlos Perez, Master Sgt. Carl Hall, and Sgt. 1st Class Gregory Parks, all Soldiers with units at Fort McCoy, served as members of a color guard for the Independence Day parade July 4 in downtown Tomah, Wis.
Fort McCoy personnel regularly support community events away from post. Many of these activities are coordinated through the Fort McCoy Public Affairs Office.
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.
