The US Army has rolled out a new app that will provide real-time information on garrison services.

In a statement, the US Army said that the Digital Garrison app is now available for download and use across most army garrisons, including US Army Garrison Wiesbaden.

The app will provide users with information on Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) retail facilities and sales and local army announcements.

The app will also provide users with access to a garrison telephone directory, Wiesbaden weather, and the MWR events calendar.

The introduction of the app is expected to boost readiness among the personnel, as well as help in keeping military communities connected.

Overall, the US Army, in partnership with AAFES, has introduced the app to 62 garrisons.

USAG Wiesbaden Public Affairs director Laurri Garcia said: “We are excited to see this app roll out and provide another information forum for our garrison.

“Digital Garrison is a valuable communications platform for our community. We will monitor its progress and capture community feedback to ensure the app continues to improve as it evolves.”

The app will be soon upgraded to integrate new partners including the Defense Commissary Agency.

The Digital Garrison app is available for download from Google Play and the Apple App Store.
