    Marines eat out cold-weather-style during training at Fort McCoy

    Students in the Fort McCoy Cold-Weather Operations Course 18-01 -- all U.S. Marines with units associated with the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing -- prepare lunch using cold-weather rations during a break in training Dec. 12, 2017, at Fort McCoy, Wis. During the course, students learn on a variety of cold-weather subjects, including skiing and snowshoe training as well as how to use ahkio sleds and the Arctic 10-person cold-weather tent. Training also focuses on terrain and weather analysis, risk management, cold-weather clothing, developing winter fighting positions in the field, camouflage and concealment, and numerous other areas that are important to know in order to survive and operate in a cold-weather environment. The training is coordinated through the Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security at Fort McCoy. (U.S. Army Photo by Scott T. Sturkol, Public Affairs Office, Fort McCoy, Wis.)
