U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Commander Col. Mary Martin engages with host nation officials and families celebrating German-American friendship with a Fourth of July garden party. The event was hosted by Achim Carius, an entrepreneur and promoter of this long-standing relationship in the picturesque town of Winkel in the vineyards of the Rhein area. The group, which includes state and federal elected officials, local mayors and business people dates back to the 1980s when it was first constituted as the “Germany-America Club.”
