Army ROTC SuperLab Training
The UW-Parkside Army ROTC (AROTC) program, led by the host school, Marquette University AROTC Golden Eagle Battalion will conduct training exercises around the UW-Parkside campus. The training will be conducted in the wooded area to the north of the Dannehl Cross Country course.
The training exercises may include a medical challenge, simulated grenade throw, simulated claymore mine emplacement, call for fire, and conclude with a ruck march. The exercises use various training implements including uniforms, nonfunctional training rifles (blue plastic), nonfunctional training claymore mines, nonfunctional training hand grenades, training dummies, a rope bridge, and other gear. None of the training implements use live ammunition or are capable of functioning as a weapon.
All areas used for training will have signs posted to alert the public, and the UW-Parkside Police Department has notified local law enforcement agencies of the training.
The event is open to the campus community and the general public.
Captain (CPT) Matthew Wellwood is the UW-Parkside Army ROTC/assistant professor of military studies instructor and will be in charge of the training.
