      An Executive Summary
                                                                        SPRING 2010

          ocated in the heart of the upper Midwest, Fort McCoy is the only U.S. Army
          installation in the state of Wisconsin. The 60,000-acre installation is fully capa-
          ble of supporting training throughout a four-season climate and offers an excel-
lent training environment and support infrastructure for military personnel to develop and
maintain the skills necessary for mission success.

      Fort McCoy exemplifies its motto, “Total Force Training Center,” by annually sup-
porting the training of reserve- and active-component military personnel from all
branches of America’s armed forces. As an Army force generation site, Fort McCoy con-
tinues to have an important role in support of the overseas contingencies by processing
and providing training and facilities for mobilizing and demobilizing reserve-component
personnel from throughout the United States.

      Since the 1980s, Fort McCoy has been the training site of choice for more than
100,000 personnel each year. We are proud of Fort McCoy’s established record of
excellence in support of our nation’s armed forces since its founding in 1909. The
installation leadership is determined to build on the record of the post’s first “Century of
Service to America” to achieve even greater success in the future.

      The intent of this publication is to provide information concerning Fort McCoy and
the impact of its operations.
