Is the US required to keep troops in Germany?

I do not understand why we always have troops in Germany.

The United States is no longer required to have troops in Germany. However, it is a useful staging area for deploying troops to the Middle East, Asia, and north Africa. Germany receives rent for these facilities. They also host several military hospitals for military personnel and living space for military families, neither of which is appropriate in a war zone.

No, we are not required to keep troops there, but we do have several bases there because it is a friendly country that's centrally located in Europe, and troops can quickly be deployed from there to problem spots in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Asia.
