Military Base in my town, as strange as it may seem

Well I live in a small town of 6,000 or so people in Wisconsin. You wouldn't expect the military to have such a presence in my town.. We have the National Guard in my town, it's in the North part in town before you leave. They have the typical, jeeps, trucks, etc.. normal vehicles at a NG base.

But one thing I noticed is odd that since I live so close to the hills, you can see them right out my bedroom window. Ever since last summer for about 2 months a chopper(military?) would patrol the bottom of the hills. It would go by the houses and the school to see if anyone would be attempting to climb up and over the hill and such, or so I think. And they would come back in the same direction going south doing the same exact thing.

Then about a month or two ago, a military helicopter was flying around and going around the hills, not patrolling it like the other one. The farthest I have gotten to the top of the hill is when I got to the barbed wire fence about halfway up. Apparently they don't want anybody to get up to the Radio Tower that is on top of the hill.

I don't know if there is a small base behind the big hill, or just a small facility that is holding something that there are always choppers flying around. I'll have to drive around and see if I can find the road leading up to the radio tower that is visible from my house.

Can you maybe provide a picture of that tower? Maybe it gives clues as to what kind of tower we're talking.

if there are no signs or fences or anything just stroll up the hill and take some closer pictures of this tower.

Mind expanding on that? AFAIK, there are no new nukes, so no need for ICBM silos.

The closest power plant that is near my town is about 50 miles north of here. The Power Plant was a former Nuclear Reactor, the rods are still there and are awaiting transport. It is now a Coal Power plant.

The tower is a radio tower and other things. But I don't see why military and other helicopters would be flying near it. It's quite puzzling.

Are they preparing or anticipating possible attacks? My guess.

Our power coop uses helicopters to patrol the rural power lines. They check for downed trees, mudslides, rockslides, and other problems with their power lines. It turns out using helicopters is a lot cheaper and faster then using trucks. If the inspectors in the helo find a problem, they call in repair trucks by radio.

No, the probably aren't going to attack the town it would be kind of pointless as the town poses no real threat to anything major.

I never did think of that it is quite possible that the power company were using heli's to inspect the power lines.

I think that bases are located everywhere. I have seen helicopter flying round my house and going off into the woods. I am talking about several helicopters. A bit strange but I havn't seen them for months. I don't see many planes or helicopters so it was quite an entertaining few minutes.

I did research on it, but I found nothing.

So what is the town's name?

Is this the Air National Guard or Army?

The town is Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.. the town I live in.

There is a National Guard post here in town, it may have been them but why they would fly near my house is beyond me.

The only thing I can find out about the guard's presence in that town is just the unit that is there. 229th Engineer Company

There's nothing else that I can find out. Can't even find an address. I doubt that it's anything other than training of some sort.

It is both Army and Air and a recruiting office is located there. Searched DoD and found a Construction Contract awarded to ACME Construction to work on a flood lock on a nearby river. All access to the type of construction or the bid was classified and required special access.

They are working on reconstructing a dam up the river, it's closed to the public, but only construction workers and employees can enter. Once the construction is complete the dam will re-open to the public.

Dams and bridges seem to get a lot of attention in regards of security.

Indeed they do cause they pose a high security risk. But I don't know what that has to do with what the military is doing flying around near the hills for an unknown reason.

"Move back! Move back!" yell members of Wisconsin National Guard's new
Rapid Reaction Force as they repel Guardsmen portraying agitators
trying to gain access to Northeast Wisconsin Technical College on Sunday.

Playing the role of a possible terrorist, Sgt. Mark Wojciechowski is
searched by Sgt. Thad Salverson. The new force is designed to deter
terrorists or respond to disaster.

From all that I have been able to discern almost all the Guard of Wisconsin
has been designated for civilian population control incase of a massive terrorist attack or martial law.
