Release date: 1995-05

In 1996 the US will complete its dramatic post-Cold War military restructuring in Germany. The results will have a serious affect on many communities that hosted US-bases. The US-military demand for goods and services in Germany has fallen by more than US $3 billion and more than 70,000 Germans have lost their jobs through direct and indirect effects.
This report attempts to fill the existing information deficit regarding the scope, nature, and status of the US drawdown as well as the post-closure impacts and redevelopment opportunities for Germany. Finally the report takes a close look at the specific conversion efforts of the Fulda and Mainz Army Military Communities at Hahn Airbase.
