    U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers with the 601st Engineer Detachment of Southfield, Mich., work on a troop project to wire and pour concrete bases for light poles June 27, 2022, at the Central Receiving Shipping Point parking lot at Fort McCoy, Wis., as part of their annual training.

    The additional lighting will increase visibility, safety and security at the site around the clock.

    The 601st's efforts on the project saved the installation an estimated $20,000 in labor costs.

    Fort McCoy’s motto is to be the “Total Force Training Center.” Located in the heart of the upper Midwest, Fort McCoy is the only U.S. Army installation in Wisconsin.

    The installation has provided support and facilities for the field and classroom training of more than 100,000 military personnel from all services nearly every year since 1984.
