Wilkommen to Stuttgart, Germany!
        Whether this is your first visit or you have become a frequent visitor to the lovely city
of Stuttgart, I hope you will find your experience here to be rewarding and enriching
throughout your stay.
        The U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart (USAG) is home to five installations within the
Stuttgart community. It is a large community composed of active duty Special Forces Army,
Air Force, Marine Corps personnel, Ready Reservists, Department of Defense civilians,
contractors, and their family members.
        I will send you a logistical support letter approximately three weeks prior to your
class. It will contain information regarding lodging, rental car (manual transmission),
transport from Stuttgart Airport and/or Frankfurt International Airport to Stuttgart, and class
size.
        Please be advised that our limited copy capability and limited supplies require that
you make copies for your class prior to your departure from the United States. The
classroom is equipped with a dry erase board and dry erase markers. A laptop (with DVD
player), LCD projector, TV/VCR, overhead projectors, etc. can be made available upon
request. Please specify AV requirements prior to arrival to ensure availability.
       If you are interested in presenting a public service seminar while you’re here,
please notify me as soon as possible with suggested topics or your areas of
expertise. I will then attempt to match you with an appropriate agency, group, or audience
that might benefit from your presentation.
       I look forward to meeting you and helping you have an enjoyable teaching
experience. Have a safe journey!
