Officials at Fort McCoy have increased the facility’s capacity to house Afghan refugees as the arrivals continue. The latest report finds 7,000 refugees staying at the Wisconsin military installation. Work has been done to increase Fort McCoy’s capacity from 10,000 to 13,000. The Department of Defense says it is increasing capacity at all of the U-S bases involved in the resettlement program. Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers says organizations trying to help the Afghan refugees prefer new items like clothing and shoes be donated – to ensure the health of everyone staying at Fort McCoy.
