Town Where Elvis Presley Was Stationed As U.S. Soldier Has Installed Pedestrian Lights Featuring The Rock Icon
Keep your blue suede shoes behind the curb! The central German town where Elvis Presley was stationed as a U.S. soldier in the 1950s has installed three pedestrian lights with images of the American rock icon.
The red shows an image of the singer striking a pose at a microphone and the green depicts his trademarked hip swivel dance. They went active this week in the town of Friedberg, where Elvis was stationed at the U.S. Army’s Ray Barracks from October 1958 to March 1960. He lived in nearby Bad Nauheim. Friedberg already has an “Elvis Presley Platz” — Elvis Presley Square — and decided to add the three lights as an added attraction for the many Elvis fans who already make the pilgrimage to the town.
