The world had a collective hissy fit when Elvis joined the army, but if he hadn’t gone to Germany, he never would have met Priscilla Beaulieu. Priscilla, who was 14 years old at the time, attended a party at Elvis’ house while he was stationed in Germany during his army service.

Priscilla’s step-father was a US Navy Pilot at the time and he did not approve of Elvis and Priscilla’s relationship. Elvis was eventually able to charm Mr. Beaulieu into allowing the relationship to continue.
