ARMY KASERNE

armykaserne@outlook.com

Kaserne is a loanword taken from the German word Kaserne (plural: Kasernen), which means “barracks”. It is the typical term used when naming the garrison location for American and Canadian forces stationed in Germany. American forces were also sometimes housed in installations simply referred to as “barracks”, such as Ray Barracks in Freidberg. Some were referred to as Kaserne like “Schloss Kaserne”. A few were referred to as Base, like “Herzo Base” and a few more were referred to as a “complex” like “Dagger Complex”.

The United States Army has 40 military installations in Germany, two of which are scheduled to close. Over 220 others have already been closed, mostly following the end of the Cold War in the 1990s. The rationale behind the large number of closures is the strategic functions of the bases, designed to serve as forward posts in any war against the USSR, are no longer relevant since the end of the Cold
