In addition to the main post, it consists of one subcommunity and is populated by American Soldiers, airmen, civilians and family members. Our Soldier population consists of nearly 15,000 individuals; 5,000 single and married Soldiers, about 6,000 civilian support personnel and close to 4,000 spouses, family members and children. Known as the “Home of Champions” and also “The Rock,” the U.S. Army Garrison Baumholder is located in the wooded hills of the Western Palatinate in the state of Rheinland-Pfalz, just 30 miles from the French and Luxemburg borders and approx. 45 minutes from Frankfurt. The military community of Baumholder encompasses Wetzel, Upper Wetzel and Smith Barracks. The German city of Baumholder is walking distance from Garrison Headquarters and the home of the 1st Armored Division’s 2nd Brigade and Division Artillery. Baumholder history In 1937 the German government selected 31,000 acres of varied terrain to the north and northeast of the city of Baumholder to become one of the largest military training areas in Germany. After World War II, the military installation was occupied by the French Army and in 1951 the post was turned over to the U.S. Army. The installation is now controlled and operated by the US Army Garrison Baumholder of the Installation Management Command, Office of the Asst. Chief of Staff for Installation Management, Dept. of the Army.
