    SEMBACH, Germany – The U.S. Army NATO Brigade has completed its move to Sembach Kaserne as part of the realignment of U.S. forces in Europe. Five weeks ago, the Brigade cased its colors in Schwetzingen their change of command ceremony. Soldiers then began the task of cleaning, packing and moving the headquarters from Tompkins Barracks near Heidelberg to their new home in Sembach, the former Air Force installation turned Army post just outside of Kaiserslautern.

    “Although the members of the brigade will miss the relationship we had with the Schwetzingen community,” Brigade Commander, Col. Robert S. Larsen said. “We are looking forward to building new friendships in Sembach and the greater Kaiserslautern community."

    The building of new friendships was a sentiment echoed by the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern Commander, Lt. Col. Lars N. Zetterstrom.

    “USAG Kaiserslautern is very excited about the NATO Brigade’s recent relocation to Kaiserslautern and specifically Sembach Kaserne. We hope the Brigade, its soldiers and family members have a smooth transition and take advantage of everything this joint community has to offer.”

    The official completion of the mover to Sembach will be an uncasing of the colors ceremony in front of Brigade Headquarters on Sept. 21.
