DOD to Save $3.4M by Returning German Facilities
The Department of Defense said Thursday it will return several facilities to the German government, saving an estimated $3.4 million.
The closures are part of U.S. European Command’s ongoing effort to remove non-enduring sites from its real property inventory. There are no personnel changes associated with these facilities and their return will have no impact on U.S. Air Forces in Europe operations, according to a written statement. The United States plans to return the facilities by 2015.
The sites are the Oberweis Annex warehouse; three communication sites at Pruem Air Station, Hahn Communication Station and ARFT radio relay station; Hochspeyer ammunition storage facility; and Bitburg Storage Annex No.2 (French Kaserne).
