    USAREUR/USAFE (Americans in Europe) Team?

    I'd like to start a team for Americans in Germany/Europe. USAREUR (Army) and USAFE (Air Force) has a large presence here in Kaiserslautern. The Germany LoCo's are all in German (go figure...)

    What do you think?

    Sounds like you have a good plan there. You could probably go through MWR or the Family Support Center to promote the team. Maybe even AFN will run a commercial for you.

    I need a new commercial on AFN, I can't count how many times I've keen Kaiserslautern based commercials for USAFE/USAEUR on that network.

    LOL.

    Good luck!!

    I was wondering how many of us out here thought it was ironic that there was an Ubuntu server in Kaiserslautern. I work @ Ramstein AB and have converted about 4 people over to ubuntu. We are continuing to truck against the every powerful WIN effect.

    If anyone is interested in handing out some free disks @ the power zone, just inform me.


    we can also get some free 'powered by ubuntu' stickers.

    I'm an American studying in Konstanz, Germany and think a local american team is a good idea...if it already exists, I'd like to sign up.

    I am guessing that this never got off the ground, as nothing has been posted in here in a bit about an American Team in Germany!!

    Unfortunately, I wound up in the hospital and the wounded warriors unit, so I haven't had the time to organize anything. I'd do my best to support anything, but I'm afraid that the mental and physical disabilities I now suffer from prevent me getting a group running. Maybe someone can take my place?
