DoD Announces Installation Realignment in Germany

DoD Announces Installation Realignment in Germany

Source: U.S. Department of Defense, Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Public Affairs). No. 771-05, July 29, 2005.

The Department of Defense announced today plans for the return of eleven Army bases to Germany in fiscal 2007. Additionally, two other bases are identified for return to Germany in following years. 


These installation returns are scheduled as part of plans for the 1st Infantry Division headquarter’s return to the United States with its divisional flag in the summer of 2006. Additionally, the 1st Infantry Division’s subordinate units, as well as selected V Corps and U.S. Army Europe (USAREUR) units, will return to the United States, inactivate entirely, convert, or be reassigned in Europe to support Army transformation in fiscal 2006.   


As a result of these unit actions, certain installations will no longer be required to support Army missions. The Army plans to return the following installations to the host nation in fiscal 2007, after the fiscal 2006 unit actions are complete:

·        Harvey Barracks, Kitzingen, Germany

·        Kitzingen Family Housing, Kitzingen, Germany

·        Kitzingen Training Area, Kitzingen, Germany

·        Larson Barracks, Kitzingen, Germany

·        Schwanberg DCS Site, Kitzingen, Germany

·        Faulenberg Kaserne, Wuerzburg, Germany

·        Wuerzburg Training Areas, Wuerzburg, Germany

·        Giebelstadt Army Airfield, Giebelstadt, Germany

·        Giebelstadt DYA Camp, Giebelstadt, Germany

·        Giebelstadt Tactical Defense Facility, Giebelstadt, Germany

·        Breitsol Communications Station, Wuerzburg, Germany


In addition, the Army will retain the following facilities until they are no longer needed and eventually return them at a date to be determined:

·        Leighton Barracks, Wuerzburg, Germany

·        Wuerzburg Hospital, Wuerzburg, Germany      


The fiscal 2006 unit transformation actions and associated base closures will affect approximately 6,100 soldiers and 11,000 family members. In addition, approximately 1,000 department of Army civilian and 1,000 host nation positions will be affected. 


The 1st Infantry Division has played an important role in Operation Iraqi Freedom and the Global War on Terrorism. With today’s announcement Army leadership is committed to supporting the 1st Infantry Division’s soldiers, families and civilian employees during this transition. 


These changes are part of the Department of Defense’s overall plan (the Integrated Global Presence and Basing Strategy) to transform the military to increase strategic responsiveness and flexibility in the face of current and anticipated future threats, and are the result of extensive consultation with our German allies. A fundamental part of this plan is to position U.S. forces around the globe to be best able to respond to the threats of the new security environment. DoD remains committed to basing a Stryker Combat Brigade Team in Vilseck, Germany, near the Army’s premier training facility in Grafenwoehr, Germany.
