FORT MCCOY, Wis. — The 3/334, 4th Brigade, 95th Training Division (IET) conducted a Situational Training Exercise (STX) at Fort McCoy, Wis.

The training incorporated several of the Army Warrior Tasks (AWT) and battle drills including key leader engagement, reacting to unexploded ordinance (UXO) and improvised explosive devices (IED), reacting to contact, moving under direct fire, and conducting a casualty evacuation (CASEVAC).

The training was prefaced by a battalion level concept plan of operations providing each company with approximately 12 hours to prepare for their respective mission. Each STX scenario included local nationals as friendly elements and opposing forces (OPFOR).

The casualty evacuation was supported with UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters from the Wisconsin National Guard 1-147th Assault Helicopter Battalion located in Madison, Wis.
