Fort McCoy welcomed Installation Management Command (IMCOM)-Readiness Director Brenda Lee McCullough for an official visit April 11-12.

As the director of IMCOM-Readiness, McCullough is responsible for installation management activities at 16 active- and reserve-component Army installations and joint bases — including Fort McCoy — located in 13 states and Puerto Rico.

McCullough and the IMCOM-Readiness team provide support for approximately 1.4 million service members, Family members, retirees, and civilians as well as oversight of an annual budget exceeding $2.2 billion for programs across several appropriated and nonappropriated funds, according to her biography.

McCullough was joined in her visit to Fort McCoy by Command Sgt. Maj. Roy L. Rocco, IMCOM-Readiness command sergeant major, and Gwendolyn Garfield, installation support team specialist.

The group toured several areas on the installation, including the simulations training complex in the 200 block.

They also received an aerial tour of the post aboard a helicopter operated by Maj. Marcea Weiss, Capt. Casey Voss, and 1st Sgt. Patrick Deuberry with the Wisconsin National Guard's 1st Battalion, 168th Aviation (MedEvac) of West Bend.

While on the aerial tour, McCullough received updates on various training areas and the overall installation from Garrison Commander Col. David J. Pinter Sr. and Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security Director Brad Stewart.

McCullough and her team also attended a meeting of Fort McCoy's Installation Planning Board, or IPB. During the meeting, McCullough presented the installation with its fifth straight Army Safety Streamer. She also learned more about the installation and its plans to continuously improve the post.

Ken Musselwhite, chief of the Plans, Analysis and Integration Office, said being able to have McCullough be a part of the meeting was helpful in melding ideas and future strategy.

"The IPB's purpose is to develop a mutually agreed upon Integrated Priorities List (IPL) in support of improving installation services and programs," Musselwhite said.

"Completion of action plans associated with the IPL is a measure of garrison success."

After the meeting, and throughout her visit, McCullough said she learned a lot about Fort McCoy.

"From what I've seen, your partnerships (on post) are strong," McCullough said. "You should be very proud of what you have done with what you have.

"I liked what I've seen, and I look forward to coming back to Fort McCoy," she said.
