The 86th Training Brigade is standing up at Fort McCoy and has opportunities for enlisted, officer, and warrant officer personnel.

The unit’s primary mission is to assist with Warrior (WAREX) and Combat Support Training Center (CSTC) exercises in fiscal year (FY) 2010 and to host WAREX and CSTC, beginning in FY 2011.

Unit personnel will include Troop Program Unit and Active Guard/Reserve Soldiers, as well as civilians. Personnel with exercise experience, Observer/Controller, and/or Lanes experience are especially encouraged to apply.
