Fort McCoy has a long and proud history of being a world-class installation that strives to provide the very best for those who train, work, and live here. While you are here, make the most of your time by taking advantage of everything the installation and local area have to offer.

Above all, Fort McCoy's primary responsibility is to support the training and readiness of the Total Force — and we take that responsibility very seriously. I encourage you to use all the resources available to you, and let us know how we can better support you.

We all play a role in ensuring our military is ready to meet all requirements in support of our Nation's strategic priorities.

Together, we will be ready for all contingencies and will ensure we can deter aggression and fight and win on the battlefield.

Army Strong,

Major General, USAR
Senior Commander

Fort McCoy is an Army Community of Excellence for the Army and Army Reserve. It is an exciting four-season training installation where we challenge and train our nation's best to remain relevant and ready for any possible contingency.

Concurrently, we have preserved our rich history and support all Service Members, Veterans, and their Families who have served our great nation.

As the garrison commander of Fort McCoy, I invite you read through this guide in an effort to fully understand and experience the wide array of four season opportunities, training, simulations, support, and amenities offered on Fort McCoy, and in the local communities.

Thanks to the efforts of the Soldiers, Civilians, Family members, contractors, and members of the local communities, you will quickly find that there is a lot to do on Fort McCoy and in the surrounding area year-round.

Enjoy your time and experience while at America's Total Force Training Center.

Army Strong,

Colonel, AV
