Fort McCoy Armed Forces Day Open House cancelled

The 2013 Fort McCoy Armed Forces Day Open House has been cancelled.

The decision to cancel the event, which had been scheduled for May 18, was based on the continuing restrictions placed on community outreach events pursuant to Department of Defense sequestration guidance. Fort McCoy's ability to successfully host the 2013 Open House event is no longer possible due to the operating limitations currently imposed.

As a strong supporter of community engagements, this was not an outcome that Garrison Commander Col. Steven W. Nott favored, however, the cancellation complies with applicable sequestration guidance.

Planning now will begin for next year's Armed Forces Day Open House, scheduled for Saturday, May 17, 2014.
