Chief Master Sgt. Anthony Harvey, security forces manager with the 164th Mission Support Group, 164th Airlift Wing, at Memphis Air National Guard Base, Tenn., talks about involvement by Air Force security forces Airmen in the Fort McCoy Cold-Weather Operations Course and about training at Fort McCoy, Wis. Harvey was a student in the course in 2020, and observed a course class in February 2021. Students in the course are trained on a variety of cold-weather subjects, including snowshoe training and skiing as well as how to use ahkio sleds and other gear. Training also focuses on terrain and weather analysis, risk management, cold-weather clothing, developing winter fighting positions in the field, camouflage and concealment, and numerous other areas that are important to know in order to survive and operate in a cold-weather environment.
