Ambush training
Personal security detail Soldiers from the 176th Engineer Brigade rush a high-value person to safety during an ambush while the Soldiers were visiting a local village. The scenario on the Fort McCoy training lane is one of several variations of a personal security detail situational training exercise protecting VIPs. This moment in the scenario is part of the attack by hostile forces and the proper reaction by U.S. forces. The 176th is training at Fort McCoy to prepare for deployment to support Operation Enduring Freedom.
