Ramstein Air Base

Ramstein Air BaseLandstuhl was part of the Ramstein/Landstuhl AB, changed name to Landstuhl-Ramstein AB on 01DEC1957, and finally to Ramstein AB on 15AUG1958.

The host unit at Ramstein Air Base, Germany is the 86th Alirlift Wing (AW). The 86th AW’s Mission is the operation and maintenance of airlift assets composed of C-130s, C-9s, C-20s and C-21s throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East . The 86th AW Commander also serves as the Kaiserslautern Military Community (KMC) commander. Also residing at Ramstein is the 435th Air Base Wing (ABW) and the 38th Combat Support Wing (CSW). The 435th ABW mission focuses on base support responsibilities within KMC while the 38th CSW provides support to Geographically Separated Units (GSUs) throughout Europe. The 435th ABW and 38th CSW Commanders both also serve as the KMC deputy commanders. Ramstein is also a North Atlantic Treaty Organization installation. Beside Americans, the installation's population is comprised of Canadian, German, British, French, Belgian, Polish, Czech, Norwegian, Danish, and Dutch forces.

Landstuhl is part of the Kaiserslautern/Ramstein complex. There are ten large dependents' schools in the immediate area. Ramstein Air Base is the headquarters for the American Air Force in Europe, plus some NATO units (British, Canadian, Belgian, Dutch, French, and German).

Landstuhl is located near a main east-west autobahn, 11 miles west of Kaiserslautern and 2 miles southwest of Ramstein. A main rail line also serves it from Heidelberg to Paris. Daily express trains are available to many European cities. The largest airport in Europe at Frankfurt is 90 minutes by auto. The climate is typical of central Europe. Winters are rainy and some snowfall is normal. There may be hot days in July and August. One should bring at least $3,000 for settling-in expenses.

Landstuhl, located across the autobahn from Ramstein AB, was built on the site of earlier Celtic and Germanic-Roman settlements. Where the present Kolpinghaus meeting place stands, once stood a Frankish king's court which dates back to the ninth century. Landstuhl received its city status by 1323 and, from a tiny population of about 150 in 1520, it has grown to a population of more than 10,000. The city has several churches and buildings which date back hundreds of years. Among the historic structures in town are the "Alte Kapelle" (Old Chapel), constructed in 1300, and "Pfarrkirche St. Andreas" which dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Only 10 minutes up the road from Ramstein is Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, the largest American hospital outside the United States. Landstuhl Regional Medical Center is located in the Rheinland-Pfalz state, 11 kilometers west of Kaiserslautern and five kilometers south of Ramstein Air Base. Landstuhl Medical Center is one of two special hospitals in Europe. There are specialists in all areas except for the rarest cases, which are treated at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C.
