An item placed in a time capsule by the Kentucky National Guard’s 617th Military Police Company in November 2004 is shown March 13, 2023, at Fort McCoy, Wis. The time capsule was discovered in late 2022 by contractors working on Fort McCoy barracks. The company placed the makeshift time capsule in the walls of the barracks thinking they’d come back to it after their deployment completed in 2005 but they forgot about it. The 617th completed their mobilization at Fort McCoy from October to November 2004 and then their demobilization a year later. The unit also is one of the most decorated combat National Guard military police units after completing that deployment. (U.S. Army Photo by Scott T.
