Ramstein Air Force Base is about 25 minutes from our house. It is a really nice base. On Ramstein you can find a Chili's, Burger King , Gyms AND the world's largest PX. Impressive I know. They also have a great pool with slides and the water isn't freezing. It does make me miss Ft.Bliss and our long summer days at the pool, but we did like swimming while the outside temperatures are still freezing.
