Military Units Currently Stationed in Europe to Return to the U.S.

PentagonThousand of soldiers in the U.S. military that are currently stationed across Europe will be returned to the U.S., according to a Military Times article.

The ultimate goal is to reduce the number of troops from a force of 40,000 soldiers and one corps headquarters and four brigade combat teams to 30,000 soldiers and two brigade combat teams.

The result is a number of Army units becoming inactive in Germany and Italy over the next few years.

The changes for 2013 are as follows:

  • 535th Engineer Company, Warner Barracks, Bamberg, Germany: inactivates
  • 12th Chemical Company, Conn Barracks, Schweinfurt, Germany: inactivates
  • V Corps Headquarters, Clay Kaserne, Wiesbaden, Germany: inactivates
  • 172nd Infantry Brigade, Grafenwoehr, Germany: inactivates
  • Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 391st Combat Service Support Battalion, Warner Barracks, Bamberg, Germany: inactivates
