Deputy Garrison Commander: Fort McCoy’s COVID-19 risk-mitigation protocols set conditions to resume training
U.S. Navy recruits walk to their barracks Oct. 1, 2020, at Fort McCoy, Wis. The Navy’s Recruit Training Command (RTC) of Great Lakes, Ill., worked with the Army at Fort McCoy so the post could serve as a restriction-of-movement (ROM) site for Navy recruits prior to entering basic training. Additional personnel support from the Navy’s Great Lakes, Ill., Millington, Tenn., and Washington, D.C., sites deployed to McCoy to assist RTC in conducting the initial 14-day ROM to help reduce the risk of bringing the coronavirus to RTC should any individual be infected. More than 40,000 recruits train annually at the Navy’s only boot camp. This is also the first time Fort McCoy has supported the Navy in this capacity. Fort McCoy’s motto is to be the “Total Force Training Center.” (U.S. Army Photo by Scott T. Sturkol, Public Affairs Office, Fort McCoy, Wis.)
