Tactical exploitation

Members of the Goodhue County Emergency Response Team, headquartered in Red Wing, Minn., train May 4 at the Search/Tactical Site Exploitation Training Facility on Fort McCoy.

The facility allows units to practice tactical-site exploitation, which includes collecting information, materials, and related items from a designated location, then analyzing what was found to aid subsequent operations or support criminal prosecution.

The Waukesha County Sherriff's Department of Waukesha, Wis., also trained at the facility the same day.

Following military history

Members of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, U.S. Army Garrison Fort McCoy, are pictured next to the historical marker for the Battle of Wisconsin Heights in Sauk City, Wis., May 7.

The group visited the area as part of a staff ride to learn more about the history of the battle that took place during the Black Hawk War in 1832. A staff ride teaches staff members more about military history in their local area.
