DOD Announces Return of Facilities in Turkey

                The Department of Defense announced today that in the city of Eskisehir, Turkey, it will return the unaccompanied housing area to the Turkish Government.

                This return is part of U.S. European Command’s continued effort to remove non-enduring sites, bases and installations from its real-property inventory.

                These actions will permit more resources to be focused on other U.S. Air Forces in Europe mission requirements and the command to realize efficiency and cost savings.

                Return of this site will result in an estimated annual savings of $93,700.

                As with all stationing actions, the United States has coordinated with host-nation officials prior to this public announcement.

                For additional information regarding this announcement, please contact U.S. Air Forces in Europe Public Affairs at 011-49-6371-47-6558 or pa.ops@ramstein.af.mil .
