I don't think so, according to my books and my bad memory there is no real military troops until the 7th march 1936. Among Ian Kershaw they were just 3000 this day.

Infanterie Divisionen for the first ; 6. or 16. Infanterie Divisionen for the second ; 9. or 19. Infanterie Divisionen for the third), which were used as nucleus for the infantry divisions raised after the remilitarization of Rheinland (25., 26., 33. and 34. Infanterie Divisionen).
Hitler played a game, but he didn't want to involve more than a couple of thousand of his rare soldiers, at this time. So 3.000 Germans soldiers seem to be an accurate figure to me.
All the best,
