    Marines with Marine Wing Support Squadron (MWSS) 271 load equipment on railcars Jan. 30, 2018, at Fort McCoy, Wis.

    The Marines were training at Fort McCoy as part of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing's Ullr Shield exercise. The unit was loading equipment to take back to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C.

    The work also was part of cold-weather railcar training for the MWSS 271 Marines.

    The training, rail movement, and related work was coordinated with the Fort McCoy Logistics Readiness Center's Transportation Division.

    Fort McCoy has supported America’s armed forces since 1909. The post’s varied terrain, state-of-the-art ranges, new as well as renovated facilities, and extensive support infrastructure combine to provide military personnel with an environment in which to develop and sustain the skills necessary for mission success.
