GRAFENWOEHR, Germany — In light of recent reports highlighting deficient living conditions in some privatized military housing in the U.S., leadership with 7th Army Training Command and U.S. Army Garrisons at Ansbach and Bavaria host town halls to address community concerns at Army housing.


The town halls — which are open to the entire community — will be held at the following locations and dates:


  • Garmisch – Pete Burke Community Center: Feb. 25, 11 a.m.


  • USAG Ansbach – Bismarck Theater: Feb. 25, 6 p.m.


  • Hohenfels Theater: Feb. 26, 4 p.m.


  • Netzaberg Chapel: Feb. 27, 8:20 a.m.


  • Tower Barracks Theater: Feb. 27, 6 p.m.

  • Rose Barracks Theater: Feb. 28, 5:30 p.m.


Join the 7ATC, USAG Ansbach and USAG Bavaria leadership at any of the town halls to address your concerns about Army housing. Child care will not be provided, but families can bring their children.


In the coming weeks, Army senior leaders will continue to engage with families, conduct analyses and determine future actions to ensure that Soldiers and their families are getting the service and responsiveness that they deserve.


Army leadership are committed to providing a safe and secure environment on all Army installations. Leadership at the installations have been directed to conduct home visits of government-leased and -owned housing to ensure all life, health and safety issues have been identified and resolved. These include any conditions that, if not corrected, may cause harm or injury to a person.


Home visits will only be conducted with the consent of those living in government-leased and -owned housing.


There will be no reprisals for reporting. Leadership want to hear the concerns of Soldiers and families — no matter how big or small — to ensure they are appropriately addressed.


Community members can contact the Housing Hotline number with their concerns at DSN 314-476-6324, CIV 09641-83-6324.
