Baraboo, Wis. – Members of the Col Sac Composite Squadron recently enjoyed the unique opportunity when receiving some excellent training from Sergeant Sullivan of the 132nd Wisconsin Army National Guard.

Seven cadets and one guest learned land navigation skills along with hands on training.  Reading gridded maps and learning the differences between lensatic and orienteering compasses were part of the learning experience. Discussing topographic formations and terrain features was noteworthy and appreciated, especially since the squadron resides in the Baraboo Bluffs.

Both the Wisconsin Army National Guard and Col Sac Composite Squadron are based out of the National Guard Armory in Baraboo. The squadron will use the skills learned by participating in the upcoming Southwest Group Emergency Services training to be held in May.
