For 60 Years, the Armed Forces Recreation Centers in Europe have supported the European Command with Rest and Recreation locations for U.S. Service Members and their families in the Beautiful Bavarian Alps. Established in the winter of 1945-46 as an R&R center for the U.S. Occupation Forces, AFRC immediately initiated programs to enhance the morale of the war weary soldiers. In the spring of 2000, the US Army senior leadership and congress approved plans to consolidate AFRC-Europe and construct a modern resort hotel in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The Edelweiss Lodge and Resort will continue the long AFRC Europe tradition of providing recreation, sports, tours and lodging for our overseas American Service Members and their families.
A traditional Hawaiian blessing complete with a royal procession officially opened the Hale Koa Hotel in 1975. From this celebrated opening 'til today, the Hale Koa Hotel remains, an all-ranks, all-service hotel bent on providing first-class service without regard to an individual's status. This is echoed in the mission of the hotel that has remained unchanged from its inception, "To operate a first class hotel and recreation facility at affordable prices for military members and their families."
Today, Fort DeRussy Armed Forces Recreation Center is the home of the Hale Koa Hotel, or House of the Warrior, an 817 room, world-class resort hotel and continued favorite R&R destination for our country's military personnel. Today, the Hale Koa takes great pride in operating self-sufficiently, with not one taxpayer dollar supporting upkeep or operation. The Hale Koa is truly a benefit for all military personnel to enjoy and it's estimated that over one million military personnel and dependents take advantage of the Hale Koa's many facilities each year.
