Commander announces Stars and Stripes‘ move to Kaiserslautern base

European Stars and Stripes will move its headquarters next year from its longtime home near Darmstadt to Kaiserslautern as part of the latest actions involving the restructuring of military forces overseas.

In a memo to employees, Air Force Lt. Col. Stephen O’Connor, Stars and Stripes’ theater commander, said U.S. Army Europe will inactivate the Darmstadt military community as part of its fiscal 2008 force structure changes. That action will necessitate moving Stripes’ headquarters and the site chosen for Stripes’; new home is Kleber Kaserne in Kaiserslautern.
