Garrison work force briefing


Fort McCoy Garrison Commander Col. David E. Chesser briefs members of the garrison work force. The Feb. 16 sessions covered accomplishments the installation has made to improve its infrastructure, including its ranges and training facilities. Chesser also addressed the state of training — 134,645 personnel trained in fiscal year 2011 — and the challenges and opportunities McCoy will have to convince units and personnel that it should be the training destination of choice for both reserve-component and active-component troops.
