Elvis entered the United States Army on March 24, 1958. He left active duty on March 5, 1960 after serving two years overseas in Germany. He was honorably discharged from the Army Reserve on March 23, 1964.
This is a photo of Elvis while he served in the Army in Europe. I know it is authentic, because he is wearing his 3rd Armor Division patch. Elvis was stationed near Kirch Goens, a small village in central Germany that was off limits to most of the GIs serving there. Elvis' mother lived for a time in an apartment in town, where Elvis visited her every night.
