A town hall meeting discussing the move of the 2nd “Dagger” Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division from Schweinfurt to Grafenwöhr, Germany, will be held at 3 p.m. Monday in the community club on Conn Barracks.

The meeting will be conducted by Dagger Brigade leaders, with personnel from U.S. Army Garrison Grafenwöhr present to provide information on the unit’s new home.

The meeting comes just days after U.S. Army Europe told the brigade that it would be moving. The Schweinfurt community was made aware of the decision Wednesday.

Initial phases of the move will affect approximately 1,500 soldiers, or about 40 percent of the brigade. The affected troops should be settling into Grafenwöhr by early summer.

All members of the Dagger military community are invited to attend, but priority seating will be given to soldiers and family members immediately affected by movement. Limited child care will be available.

For more information, call DSN 353-8505 or 09721-96-8508.
