US Army Berlin (USAB) was a command of the United States Army created in December 1961 at the height of the Berlin Wall Crisis.

USAB was a combined command with Headquarters, US Command Berlin (USCOB). This combined organization was sometimes referred to as "Berlin Command".

USCOB/USAB was a separate command from US Army Europe (USAREUR), which had previously commanded American troops in West Berlin.

The Major General who commanded this organization bore the title "Commander; US Commander Berlin; Commander of the US Army Berlin".

A brigadier general served as "Commander, Berlin Brigade (Infantry); Deputy Commander, U.S. Army Berlin.

The sleeve insignia adopted by USAB were the same as those used by the Berlin Brigade-the Berlin-labeled USAREUR patch.

The headquarters were in the Clay headquarters on Clayallee in the Berlin district of Zehlendorf.
