Reassigning Soldiers in Europe

There's a ton of movement going on in Europe with the restationing of units related to the 173rd BCT(A). And if you follow the link, you'll see a metric monkeyload of other moves coming over the next 3 years.

Key actions announced Friday by the Pentagon include the relocations of the 173rd ABCT’s headquarters, and the 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, from Caserma Ederle, Vicenza, Italy to the newly refurbished Del Din facility, also in Vicenza.

Two Germany-based units, the 173rd Special Troops Battalion and the 173rd Support Battalion will move from Bamberg, to the Del Din facility

The 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment in Schweinfurt, Germany, and the 4th Battalion, 319th Field Artillery Regiment in Bamberg will move to Grafenwoehr.

The later moves will facilitate the closure of U.S. installations in Bamberg and Schweinfurt.

The 1st Battalion, 503d Infantry Regiment of the 173rd ABCT will remain at Caserma Ederle.
