US Air Forces in Europe officials at Ramstein AB, Germany, expect to open Phase II of the new Kaiserslautern Military Community Center on Aug. 15. Earlier this year, Phase I opened with the Ramstein Inn’s Visitor’s Quarters, Romano’s Macaroni Grill, Sports Lounge, and other concessions. In Phase II, the K-town project will open its food court, four-plex movie theater, credit unions, and dozens of permanent and roving concessionaires. The final phase of the 844,000 square foot complex is slated to open next month and will include the Army & Air Force Exchange Service BX. “This is the largest AAFES facility in the world,” said Stephanie Burns, KMCC AAFES manager, and added, “We know it’s going to be a destination for customers all throughout Europe.” (Ramstein report by TSgt.
