4. Elvis Presley made Major in the army
In September 1958, Elvis was assigned to the Third Armoured Division in Friedberg, West Germany, where he served as a jeep driver and continued to receive stacks of fan mail. While in Germany, he lived off base with his father and grandmother Minnie Mae Presley. It was also during this time that Elvis met 14-year-old Priscilla Beaulieu, the daughter of a U.S. Air Force captain.
