VII Corps (United States) - Redeployment and Deactivation

Redeployment and Deactivation

After the fighting was over most VII Corps units were redeployed directly to the United States for reassignment or retirement. VII Corps HQ returned to Germany and was disbanded as part of the post-Cold War American defense spending cuts. Some VII Corps units remained in Germany and were reassigned to V Corps or USAREUR. A ceremony was held in downtown Stuttgart at Schlossplatz, where the VII Corps colors were retired on March 18, 1992. (See references)
