No German first-grader goes through their first day of school without their Schultüte, a cone filled with sweets, small toys and school supplies.

Laurri Garcia (left), director of public affairs, and Liz Moore, government relations officer, discuss the unique housing issues of Germany during U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden’s PCS Symposium June 24. In the background from left to right, DeAngelo Bivins, central processing facility manager; Dr. Jason Ter Horst, Sembach, Wiesbaden and Baumholder community superintendent of DoDEA schools; and other subject matter experts answer questions posted during the Facebook Live event. These symposiums were conducted to address the unique situations created by the COVID-19 pandemic as Soldiers and civilians plan their PCS moves. Between the two symposiums already conducted, more than 500 comments were posed to the experts with answers being posted live or in follow-up notes on Facebook. Those planning their moves can see both symposiums on the garrison’s Facebook page at facebook.com/usagwiesbaden. All of the symposium questions and answers will be posted in the notes section.
