LOCATION
The United States Army Garrison Franconia (USAG Franconia) includes three distinctly different communities and six installations. Wuerzburg, Kitzingen, and Giebelstadt are uniquely located in the Franconian wine producing region in the state of Bavaria. The communities are rich with history, recreation, and cultural opportunities. The USAG Franconia is spread across a triangle shaped area in northern Bavaria. Wuerzburg is home to the headquarters of the 1st Infantry Division and the 67th Combat Support Hospital. Kitzingen houses nearly three-fifths of the soldiers assigned to the footprint. Giebelstadt Army Airfield hosts the 12th Aviation Brigade and 69th Air Defense Artillery Brigade as its primary tenants.

The area surrounding Wuerzburg, Giebelstadt and Kitzingen is marked by a well developed infrastructure. You will be closely located to several "Autobahnen", which are equivalent to the American interstates. The public transportation network, consisting of buses and trains, covers a wide area, bringing you anywhere you want to go even if you don't have a car. The closest airports are Nuremberg and Frankfurt, which are easily reachable by both car and train.

There are two military post (kaserns) in Kitzingen Germany, Harvey Barracks and Larson Barracks.

History - Harvey Barracks was built in 1917 and served as a training school for pilots during World War I (WWI) After WWI, the land was returned to the farmers. In 1933, the area was used as an airfield. Additional barracks and a hanger were built, which served as a training school. The training school originally trained civilian personnel for the "Luftwaffe" (German Air Force). Pilots from the famous dive bomber squadrons and pursuit planes were also trained in Kitzingen. Towards the end of World War II (WWII), a few jets were stationed at Harvey Barracks and hidden in the forest. At the end of 1945, U.S. Army units took over Harvey Barracks and from 1947-1949 it was called the Kitzingen Training Center. On 2 April 1951, Harvey Barracks regained its name in honor of Captain James R. Harvey, Company E, 359th Infantry, who was killed during the invasion of Normandy, France. For his actions of extraordinary heroism, he was awarded the distinguished service cross posthumously.

History - Larson Barracks served as a camp for displaced persons from 1945 to 1947. From 1947 to 1952, Larson was used as a collection point for German Army trucks to be overhauled and made ready for sale. In May 1962, Larson Barracks was named in honor of Captain Stanley L. Larson, Company C, 10th Engineer Battalion, who was killed while clearing a minefield Anzio Beachhead on 23 May 1944. He was posthumously awarded the distinguish service cross.
