MISSION The peacetime mission of the 279th BSB is to provide basic quality of life to the units within our community. In times of conflict or war, the mission is to process and deploy both forces and equipment throughout Germany and Europe.

HISTORY OF WARNER BARRACKS Warner Barracks has been occupied by American forces since the end of World War II. Prior to WWII, almost every branch of the German Army was stationed at Warner Barracks at some time. After World War II, the headquarters of the U.S. Constabulary was located in Bamberg. The Constabulary was a highly mobile unit made up of the 28th Infantry Regiment and the 1st Infantry Division. The unit was responsible for patrolling the American occupied quarter of Germany. In June 1948, the Soviets imposed the Berlin Blockade changing the United States' role in Germany from occupier to defender. The Constabulary was eventually phased out. The current Warner Barracks complex was appropriated in 1950 by U.S. forces and renamed in honor of CPL Henry Warner. Warner was killed in action in 1944 after his heroic anti-tank actions in Dom Budgenbach, Belgium. In 1991, the Bamberg military community became the 279th Base Support Battalion, under the 99th Area Support Group in Nuernberg, and in 1993, joined the 98th Area Support Group, based in Wuerzburg.
