Welcome to "The Rock"

It is an honor for CSM Creighton, my wife Julia and I to welcome you to the United States Army Garrison Baumholder.  We are excited to welcome you to our community!  We look forward to bringing you onto Team Baumholder upon your arrival.  Baumholder is a wonderful duty station and I know that you will enjoy your time here.

Baumholder, known affectionately as “The Rock”, is located in a scenic area of the German state of Rhineland Pfalz.  With Autobahn 62 nearby, a trip to France, Luxembourg or Belgium is only a short drive away.   Even closer, however, are the wonderful German communities surrounding our post.  The relationship we have with our surrounding German communities is unlike any other in Europe.  We continue to receive an incredible amount of support from our Host Nation partners around the Garrison and I promise this will only add to your enjoyment of your overseas tour.

All members of the Garrison Staff are dedicated to making your time with us a positive and rewarding experience.   We offer a wide range of services and events to accommodate nearly any possible need.  From our nine-hole golf course to our own indoor pool, USAG Baumholder has opportunities for every Soldier and Family Member to enjoy being part of the Baumholder Team.  Whether you are a Single, Married, Married with Children or Single with Children, we have a wide range of services and support here to help you thrive in the community. Our goal at USAG Baumholder is to lay the ground work in order for you to have a successful and enjoyable European tour.

Again, Baumholder is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. We offer an enormous amount of opportunities to have fun, build meaningful relationships and serve your nation with distinction. Remember, your tour is what you make of it – so I challenge you to strive to make it the best experience possible.

On behalf of every Soldier, Civilian and Family Member in the Baumholder military community welcome to The ROCK!
