A visit to the Eagle’s Nest in Southern Germany offers visitors a trip back into World War II history.
 The mountain-top retreat, known to Germans as the “Kehlsteinhaus,” is a lodge that sits atop the Kehlstein Mountain near the city of Berchtesgaden in the German state of Bavaria.

Solomon Rigsby, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron assistant chief of HAZMAT and safety,  stands guard during a retreat ceremony Wednesday on Ramstein in remembrance of 9/11. This year’s ceremony was hosted by the 86th CES fire department, 86th Medical Group and the 86th Security Forces Squadron. Ramstein’s first responders save lives every day as did those who responded to the events on Sept. 11, 2001. Wednesday’s retreat paid homage to those who gave their lives so that others may live.
