Map of locations of completely and partially foreign military bases in Germany as planned for 2020
As planned for 2020

The United States Army has over 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 that 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 War.

The United States Armed Forces were initially organized as USEFT (United States Force European Theater, from August 1, 1945 to February 28, 1946, in Berlin and Frankfurt am Main, in the IG Farben building. On March 15, 1947 they were reassigned to EUCOM (European Command) in Frankfurt, 1948 moved from Frankfurt to Heidelberg, Campbell Barracks. On January 1, 1950 it was reorganized as USAREUR (United States Army Europe). USAREUR was subordinate to USEUCOM (United States European Command), since 1967 in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Patch Barracks.
