Coleman Kaserne, (Panzerjaeger Kaserne),
construction began in 1933 and was completed in 1936 and originally used for training personnel in an anti-tank battalion until WWII started. At that time the kaserne only included the area that we knew as the 2d Battalion, 6th Field Artillery Regiment, and the 1st battalion 33d Armor , and a number of miscellaneous structures.
It was situated between between two wooded hills and was home to the 3rd Armored Division's 2nd Brigade which was home to the 1/33 Armor Battalion.
Combat Command B of the 3d Armored Division initially occupied Coleman Kaserne in the 1950's.
Coleman was situated at Gelnhausen, a picturesque town in the Kinzig River valley about 25 miles east of Frankfurt.
The Soviet zone was 43 miles east.
