Army Ball celebrates 100 years of US Army presence in Europe

The Stuttgart military community is invited to the Army Ball to commemorate 100 years of U.S. Army presence in Europe, also celebrating the Army’s 242nd birthday, June 10 from 6-11 p.m. at Stadthalle in Sindelfingen.

Tickets are on sale online here.

The event is open to all military personnel and their guests in the community, with a special emphasis on serving and former members of all components of the U.S. Army.

The featured speaker for the event is Maj. Gen.  Gordon “Skip” Davis, Chief of Operations for U.S. European Command.  The event also includes music, dinner, dancing and the camaraderie of the whole military community.

The Army celebrates and shares its unique culture and traditions with other members of the military community on its birthday each year.  This year the Army community here is commemorating 100 years of involvement in Europe, dating back to the first arrival of U.S. forces in France during World War I in 1917.

Buses are available from the four U.S. bases in the Stuttgart area (Panzer, Patch, Kelley and Robinson) to the venue and return.  Childcare will also be available at the Patch Child Development Center.
