The 7th Army Training Command (7th ATC), headquartered at Tower Barracks in Grafenwoehr, Germany, exercises Training and Readiness Authority (TRA) over three active brigades.
The Grafenwoehr Training Area was created following the activation of the III Royal Bavarian Corps in 1900 and in 1908, the training area was officially designated as Training Area Grafenwoehr. After the Nazis took power, the Wehrmacht used the training area for military training and guarded enemy prisoners of war. After WWII, U.S. Army Europe expanded the role and importance of the training area to meet the increased training needs, and it also increased the facilities to support the troops during training. A large buildup of Rose Barracks, Vilseck occurred in the mid 1980s with the construction of facilities to support a brigade size element which is now home to the 2nd Cavalry Regiment.
Additionally, 7th ATC oversees the EUCOM directed CTC development efforts with partnered nations at the Joint Multinational Training Group Ukraine (JMTG-U) and the Georgian Defense Readiness Program-Training (GDRP-T). As a European-based command, 7th ATC will continue to support the Army’s foremost responsibility to deliver ready, trained, and equipped forces to meet operational demands. The 7th ATC maintains a high state of readiness and develops leaders at all levels by focusing on the 7th ATC Seven: Marksmanship, Physical Fitness, Medical Skills, Communications, Small Unit Tactics, Mastery of Maintenance, and Discipline.
