Summary

Visitors look at displays June 7, 2019, in the Fort McCoy (Wis.) History Center during one of the public open days of the post's Commemorative Area. Public open days are coordinated by the Fort McCoy Public Affairs Office. The 900 block of Fort McCoy and the 11-acre area surrounding it are at the hub of the fort's history-preservation efforts and is called the Commemorative Area. The Commemorative Area consists of five World War II-era buildings set aside to help tell Fort McCoy's unique story. These facilities are representative of the types found in the cantonment area when it was constructed in 1942. Three of the buildings — an administrative facility, a dining facility, and a barracks — are set up to depict Soldier life during the 1940s. Display items include a World War II chapel, bunk beds, footlockers, mannequins, and potbelly stoves. Another building highlights four different modern military training venues, and a separate facility shows various training aids.
