SGM Todd Seurcamp explains the different operations involved in the 2-107th Annual Training at Muscatatuck Urban Training Center.
Located in South Central Indiana's Jennings County near Butlerville, Muscatatuck Urban Training Center (MUTC) is a secluded, self-contained community, once home to the Muscatatuck State Developmental Center. The 1,000 acre site was turned over to the Indiana National Guard in July 2005 and has since evolved into a full-immersion contemporary urban training environment.
Those utilizing MUTC have access to a 180-acre reservoir and urban infrastructure consisting of 1,560 training structures. Available facilities include a school, hospital, dormitories, light industrial structures, single-family type dwellings, a dining facility and administrative buildings totaling approximately 850,000 square feet of floor space. Additionally, the training area includes an extensive, 1,866-foot underground utility tunnel system and over 9 miles of road.
MUTC is a consortium of governmental, public and private entities that are pooling their unique capabilities to provide the most realistic training experience possible. The trainint provided at MUTC can be tailored to replicate both foreign and domestic scenarios and can be utilized by various civilian and military organizations.
In its first year of operation, the facilities at MUTC were utilized by over 16,000 individuals from military, government, and private agencies and is continually expanding training capabilities for future needs.
"People have tried to explain this, but you can't really grasp the capability until you see it first hand, this is big...we are spending millions trying to build this, and you already have it in Indiana."
- Col. (P) Joe E. Rameriz, Deputy Commanding General,
CAC-T, US Army Training and Doctrine Command, 18 Aug, 2006
