Garmisch-Partenkirchen, located on the German-Austrian border at the foot of the Alps, was two 1,100 year old towns when they were reluctantly merged in 1935 for the 1936 Winter Olympics.


The military presence began in 1935 when the German army built Krafft von Dellmensingen Kaserne (now Artillery Kaserne) as a home for their elite "Edelweiss" mountain troops.


Already a popular German ski resort area, the growing city became a U.S. military garrison in 1945. USA soldiers with previous skiing experience were trained here in case of war with Russia. Jim Mathews is in center with white t-shirt.
