Your new installation gives you the essentials — things like housing, medical, education assistance and financial services — but, more importantly, it also provides you with a sense of community. Morale, Welfare and Recreation includes all of the opportunities that strengthen your experience and enhance your well-being. These services may include community recreation centers, sports recreation, recreational lodging and RV parks. Each installation has different resources available, so be sure to learn about your options here.
Our mobile military members often don't have the resources of a brick and mortar library on hand. The Morale, Welfare and Recreation Digital Library provides resources for members in transit, at foreign missions or remote sites, and for deployed personnel. Access to library materials in digital and downloadable format is available online, 24/7. The library provides recreation, lifelong learning, and reference and career resources for all ages and interests. All resources, including audiobooks and eBooks, are available at no cost to service members anywhere there is access to the internet.
The Morale, Welfare and Recreation Digital Library resources include the following:

Military Dining Facilities, Officer and NCO Clubs
There are no US Officers, NCO, or Combined Clubs here at Kalkar. There is, however, a community room on the third floor of our National Support Unit that serves as the meeting place for the Booster Club and for the community's social functions.
There is a small German canteen (snack bar) for airmen and a Combined Enlisted and Officers Club, which has meal services. The Combined Club also serves a "troop issue" menu at noon, in addition to the regular menu. The Combined Club has active social programs. Membership costs are very reasonable.
Kalkar Wives' Club
The Kalkar Wives' Club was founded to promote international friendship while learning about and enjoying the Kalkar area. The club is open to all spouses of the Kaserne and Kalkar community and every nationality has a National Representative on the Executive Committee. The program generally includes a monthly morning coffee for all members and at least one additional outing per month throughout the year.
Spangdahlem AB is our designated support base for Chaplain Service. Our assigned Chaplain from Volkel Air Base (NL) holds protestant services every Sunday morning in our National Support Unit. Additionally, the Chaplain makes weekly visits and can provide religious education material, counseling services, and emergency Chaplain support upon request. English speaking Catholic services can be found in the Netherlands (30 miles away) and Rheindahlen AB (55 miles away), but also in Duesseldorf.
