The numbers were lower than FY 2018’s total of 148,733 because several Army National Guard units that usually conduct training at Fort McCoy were sent on deployments to areas of the world where the Army supports numerous ongoing operations.

The ECT total for the fiscal year was 68,812, which includes institutional, civilian, and law-enforcement training and major exercises. The battle drill weekend training total for FY 2019 was 56,354.
