    Default US troops in France


    The camp des loges was only the location for some of the SHAPE US troops from 1951 to 1965. The Heaquarter and General Staff of this organization were located in Rocquencourt (near Versailles) 10kms SE from there.

    It's now the French Ile-de-France region Military Staff HQ as well as the HQ of the 526e supply and facility regiment;

    Camp des Loges was the headquarter of USEUCOM (United States Euopean Command).

    Headquarters Locations

    The Headquarters, U.S. European Command was "temporarily opened" at the I.G. Farben Hochhaus (renamed the C. W. Abrams Building) in Frankfurt in 1952, where it remained for two years until permanent facilities were available. In 1954, HQ USEUCOM relocated to Camp-de-Loges on the outskirts of Paris to be near SHAPE headquarters and remained there until the withdrawal of the NATO and U.S. Forces from France, at the 1966 request of President Charles De Gaulle. The search for new quarters resulted in HQ Seventh U.S. Army moving from Patch Barracks in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Germany, and relocating with HQ USAREUR in Heidelberg. HQ USEUCOM moved to Patch Barracks 15 March 1967.
