Units uncase colors at new home in Schweinfurt
BAMBERG, Germany — Soldiers of the 7th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade and the 72nd Expeditionary Signal Battalion officially completed their move to Schweinfurt from Mannheim on Friday with an uncasing of the colors ceremony, according to a Schweinfurt Public Affairs Office news release.
The ceremony took place on Ledward Barracks in Schweinfurt. All of the units’ personnel will be in Schweinfurt by Aug. 15, according to the PAO office.
The unit had been in Mannheim since 1970, the release states. By summer 2012, USAREUR anticipates most of the Mannheim-area soldier population will have departed.
