The official said that the exact size of the reduction has not been decided but a cut of 9,500 is the current tentative planning figure. The formal order to begin moving troops has yet to be given but is expected soon.
There are approximately 34,000 US troops stationed in Germany.



Remottest Places in the World

Best Bridges in the World

Brooklyn Bridge, New York City, New York, USA
Completed in 1883, Brooklyn Bridge is one of New York City's most famous sights and it has a rich history too. Given the bridge's lengthy span, New Yorkers were initially nervous of setting foot on the structure, and this fear was heightened after a stampede on the bridge killed 12 people. To help quell these anxieties, notorious circus man P. T. Barnum paraded 21 of his elephants across the length of the bridge to prove that it was safe. Now thousands of vehicles and pedestrians cross this East River bridge on a normal day.
