I firmly believe that everything we do is directly related to the readiness of tactical units in our area of ​​responsibility. And when soldiers are deployed or on support exercises, we take care of their families. What we do is very important because it has a direct impact on their well-being and the readiness of their unit.

I love working with soldiers and civilians, and their families, here in the Baumholder military community – but also with local national employees. It is truly a blessing to work with local employees in our host country. Not everyone has this opportunity. I have a great team here that supports our community really well, and I think our reputation speaks for itself. We really want to be here and we want to do everything we can to make this a better place for all of our soldiers and families who are posted here. It’s one of the Army’s hidden gems – Baumholder is a great community, and that’s my daily motivation.
