The soldier Elvis Presley arrives in Germany (October 1, 1958)

The most famous G.I. to complete his military service in Germany after the end of World War II is evidently Elvis Presley, who arrives aboard the USS „General Randall“ in Bremerhaven on October 1, 1958. He continues on to Hessen via a special military train, where the 23 year old is stationed for the next 18 months.  Prior to his military duty in Germany the “King of Rock ’n’ Roll” completed basic training in Fort Hood, Texas. Unlike many other celebrities he chose regular service rather than Special Services. He still enjoys a number of privileges.  Rather than stay at the Ray-Barracks in Friedberg he and his relatives plus two bodyguards first stay at a hotel and then move into a private house in nearby Bad Nauheim. Fans hang outside the “Villa Grunewald” day and night. They follow his every move. It is no wonder, with the musician having had a dozen number 1 hits such as “Hound Dog” or “Don’t be Cruel”, and the ratings for his TV-shows reaching 80 percent. Even though he is not allowed to perform any concerts during his military service, Private Presley remains present in the music scene. Every few months his manager releases a pre-recorded single. Also, pre-production for the film called “G.I. Blues” is in full mode. The film for which Elvis would record the German folksong “Muss I denn, muss I denn zum Städtele hinaus” actually takes places in Germany.   

Presley’s military time in Germany has a significant impact on his private life. In the fall of 1959 he meets Priscilla Beaulieu, the stepdaughter of a superior, who is only 14-years old at the time. Eight years later they get married in Las Vegas.
