safely and to standard.
The unit members experienced the diversity of the ranges and training
opportunities at Fort McCoy.
The unit accomplished training with weapons such as the M16 and MK19
grenade launcher, and also conducted nuclear, biological and chemical
training and hand grenade training.
Other tasks helped to develop esprit de corps, teamwork and confidence.
The unit trained at Fort McCoy from May 4-19.
