U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden
The U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden is the on-site administration for the 16,600-strong American military community in Hessen.
The task of the U.S. Garrison is to ensure the stand-by duty and wellbeing of currently 3,100 U.S. soldiers, 3,900 American civilian staff, 10,500 American family members, 1,200 local employees and 1,100 pensioners.
The on-site administration provides the American forces and their families a wide range of services, from infrastructure and security to playschools, schools and internal shopping and leisure facilities.
