UW-Parkside AROTC To Conduct Training Exercise Saturday, OCT. 7

Published: October 5, 2017

Saturday, Oct. 7, from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., the UW-Parkside Army ROTC (AROTC) program will conduct training exercises around the UW-Parkside campus. Approximately 20 AROTC students from UW-Parkside, UW-Milwaukee, and Marquette University will take part in the training. The event is open to the public and to media.

The exercises include navigating a rope bridge, a medical challenge, simulated grenade throw, simulated claymore mine emplacement, call for fire, and conclude with a ruck march. Sergeant First Class (SFC) Joshua Pagan is the University of Wisconsin-Parkside Army ROTC/Military Studies instructor and will be in charge of the training.

The exercises use various training implements including uniforms, non-functional training rifles, non-functional training claymore mines, non-functional 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 exercises begin in a wooded area north of Pike River Suites; continue on the east side of Greenquist Hall; and conclude east of Tallent Hall.
