Commander welcomes newcomers


Dear community members,

As someone that’s had the great joy to be stationed here twice, let me tell you, you’re about to embark on and adventure that you will carry with you for the rest of your lives.

Our community is the best of both worlds. We’re a small town, located in the middle of a major metropolitan area – and we’re in Europe to top it off!

This special edition of the Herald Union exists to help set you up for success for the next few years here. It’s full of tons of great information and is just one of many resources you have at your disposal.

While living in Wiesbaden, I encourage you to engage with the community both on and off post. Seek out what this great place has to offer, and you’ll never regret it.

If you haven’t yet, I also urge all newcomers to visit Army Community Service and get set up with a sponsor, who can help you settle in, show you around and introduce you to the opportunities that exist in abundance here.

ACS’s new Spouse Sponsorship program matches spouses with community members who have similar interests. This provides people new to the community a way to find out about programs and activities, and to meet new friends.

If you run into issues, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, or my service directors, through ICE, my Commander’s Hotline, or my monthly radio show on AFN 103.7 FM. We’re here to help you get settled in and ready for what Germany has to offer.

Welcome to U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden, “Our Home in Germany.”

Col. Noah C. Cloud
U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden commander
