Kelley Barracks, the headquarters of U.S. Africa Command, is located in Stuttgart-Moehringen, Germany. Once the site of a nursery, the land where Kelley Barracks is located was purchased in 1937 by the German military. The military agreed not to cut more than 20 percent of the wooded area, resulting in the natural beauty of the post today. The installation served during the Cold War as the headquarters of the U.S. Army VII Corps, which provided NATO defense to southern Germany. About 1,700 people work at Kelley Barracks, including military, civilians, and contractors.
