The work was performed by the 236th Engineer Company, a Texas Army National Guard unit, which deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The 236th was the last unit to go through mobilization preparations, training and deployment at Fort McCoy. That training included their work as vertical construction combat engineers, repairing and renovating several structures on the installation’s training lanes.
