Logistics units move as part of base closure and realignment in Europe.

Organizational changes and relocations in U.S. Army Europe (USAREUR) will affect a number of logistics units. The 2009 transformation plan will inactivate the 1st Armored Division Support Command in Wiesbaden, Germany, and move the 405th Army Field Support Brigade headquarters and its associated logistics assistance representatives from Seckenheim, Germany, to Kaiserslautern, Germany. Also moving to Kaiserslautern will be the 409th Contracting Support Brigade, the Civilian Human Resources Agency-Europe Region, and the Army Contracting Command, which are now located at Seckenheim. The Regional Contracting Office and 635th Movement Control Team will move from Wiesbaden to Kaiserslautern. The 720th Ordnance Company in Mannheim, Germany, will convert to a modular company. The 109th Transportation Company and the 606th Movement Control Team from Mannheim will return to the United States, as will the 495th Movement Control Team from Vicenza, Italy.

The headquarters of the 7th Army Reserve Command in Kaiserslautern will convert to the 7th Civil Support Command.

These logistics changes are part of the larger conversion of USAREUR headquarters to the 7th Army headquarters. The deployable field Army headquarters will be capable of expeditionary full-spectrum operations and command and control while it continues to serve as the Army service component command of the U.S. European Command. The unit will relocate from Heidelberg, Germany, to Stuttgart, and V Corps headquarters in Heidelberg will inactivate.

USAREUR will tentatively complete realignment in the 2012 to 2013 timeframe if no further modifications are made to the transformation plans.
