ANSBACH, Germany (June 10, 2015) – Several Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation services and programs are scheduled to change due to upcoming changes at U.S. Army Garrison Ansbach.
With the announcement of the Aviation Restructuring Initiative in April, several units of 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, USAG Ansbach’s main tenant unit, will realign or inactivate over the next few months. In addition to this, permanent military members stationed at Storck Barracks at Illesheim, Germany, will move to the Ansbach area as rotational units use Storck Barracks to train and deploy in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.
The Storck Child Development Center and School Age Center will stay open until Sept. 30. During the summer, hourly care will continue to be available at Storck. Students enrolled at Storck will be offered a space at the Katterbach CDC or SAC. School-age services will be delivered exclusively at Katterbach at the start of the upcoming school year. The youth summer camp will take place at Katterbach Kaserne with shuttling available for Storck Barracks-area students. The youth sports programs at Storck Barracks are scheduled to continue this summer.
The Automotive Skills Center at Storck Barracks is scheduled to close Sept. 30. Services will continue to be offered at the Automotive Skills Center at Urlas Community. There is a possibility hours at the Urlas Automotive Skills Center may be altered to accommodate patrons who drive to Urlas from Storck to work on their vehicles.
The Value-Added Tax office at Storck will close July 30. The same service will continue to be offered at MWR Central at Urlas Community.
Storck Army Community Service, Bunch Fitness Center, Storck Library, the Warrior Zone and Storck Bowling Center will re-gear and retool their operations to serve rotational forces, whose population will fluctuate. Some services will expand, and some of the Family-friendly features may be tailored to be more Soldier-friendly, such as at the Storck Library.
