Home of the 86th Airlift Wing of the United States Air Force and headquarters of U.S. Air Forces Europe, Ramstein Air Base is located in the southwest corner of Germany.
Known as the “Gateway to Europe,” the base’s strategic location makes it a crucial launch point for theater and strategic air mobility missions in Europe, Asia, and beyond. From its inception in 1952, Ramstein Air Base has played an important role in the international combat and crisis management mission of NATO. The base now serves as the headquarters for the NATO Allied Air Component Command.
This 7/8-inch (22mm) round lapel pin commemorates the rich history of Ramstein Air Base and honors all those who have served this great military installation. Minted with an antique nickel finish, the pin features the base’s emblem detailed in vibrant enamel color.
