USAG Bamberg: Overview

The United States Army has occupied the Warner Barracks since the defeat of the Third Reich at the end of World War II. At that time, the Headquarters of the U.S. Constabulary, which was a mobile unit of the 28th Infantry Regiment and the 1st Infantry Division, was established in Bamberg. This mission was to patrol the areas of Germany occupied by the U.S. Following the Cold War, the 279th Base Support Battalion was established at Bamberg. The battalion fell under the control of the 99th Area Support Group until 1993 when it joined the 98th Area Support Group out of Wuerzburg. The 38th Personnel Services Battalion HQ moved to the Warner Barracks in Bamberg. This entity is responsible for the command and control of personnel and postal units in the 98th and 100th Area Support Groups. The mission includes maintaining personnel records, issuing ID cards, personnel accountability, and the area of responsibility includes detachments and platoons in Kitzingen, W├╝rzburg, Schweinfurt, Ansbach and Vilseck.
