Soldiers use a front end loader and shovels to fill and level HESCO barriers as part of constructing a security berm perimeter at an entry control point at Fort McCoy’s Contingency Operating Location Freedom. The berms originally were designed for flood control and have been used for that purpose particularly in the Dakotas. The Soldiers, from the 827th Engineer Company, New York Army National Guard, are training to deploy in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
