A U.S. Air Force aircrew operates a C-130 Hercules at over Fort McCoy air space on Sept. 14, 2023, at Fort McCoy, Wis.
According to its Air Force fact sheet, the C-130 Hercules primarily performs the tactical portion of the Air Force’s airlift mission.
The aircraft is capable of operating from rough, dirt strips and is the prime transport for airdropping troops and equipment into hostile areas.
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.
