About our association
Foundation of the Host Nation Council Spangdahlem e.V. took place in Berlin at the parliamentary association in the year of 2003, when Spangdahlem AFB celebrated its 50th anniversary. Unfortunately, at that time the political German-American relation hit an all time low. The local region did not want to identify itself with this situation. Based on that, Roger Graef, the former Bitburg-Prüm County Commissioner, had the idea to demonstrate our solidarity with all American neighbours.
This idea became reality thru the support of numerous regional non partisan representatives by founding the Host Nation Council, pursuing the following goals:
- enhance the already existing strong
- support for all us Forces in the
Region emphasize the importance of their presence stress the significant meaning of our friendship
The Council consists of:
- Chairman: Jan Niewodniczanski
- 13 Board members: (State Politicians, the surrounding County Commissioners, Mayors, Deputies,
- a Legal Representative and a Treasurer.)
- 250 Council members (Communities, business and civilians representatives)
We all would like for the Eifel to become a “Home away from Home” for our American neighbours and present the Host Nation Council as sign of gratitude for many decades of liberty, freedom and democracy, guaranteed by the US leadership and its service members.
