Enabling the American military’s ability to fight for liberty and defend its allies anywhere on the glove is the mission of the proud soldiers who gain their training at Fort McCoy Garrison Total Force Training Center. This coin unifies the 100,000 personnel from all services who annually pass through its gates to ensure the readiness of America’s active and reserve component military forces.
Established in 1909 in Wisconsin, Fort McCoy has been in continuous service since, training forces for deployment during conflicts from World War II and Korea through the present.
Fort McCoy’s off-post support area is among the largest in the United States. Tasked with training, readiness, and mobilization, Fort McCoy’s higher headquarters is the United States Army Reserve Command (USARC) in Atlanta, GA, plus manages four sub installations: Fort Pickett, VA; Fort Devens, MA; and Parks Reserve Forces Training Area and Fort Hunter Liggett in California.
Minted in a antique bronze, this coin pays tribute to the military personnel, past and present, active and reserve, who have made it possible to defend America’s freedom and interests anywhere on the globe by focusing on results and striving for continuous improvement. The precisely hand-enameled obverse features the fort’s official crest with twin pines and a triad representing the fort’s cantonment. The US Army Values encircle the reverse, with an area reserved for engraving a name, a message, or a date of service.
Minted in a brass alloy and finished in bronze, this coin is imbued with rich enamel on both sides.
Each coin measures 1 3/4 inch (44mm) in diameter.
