Friedberg is located approximately 20 miles north of Frankfurt Germany and is a city rich in history. It also has the distinct honor of being the city where the "King of Rock-n-Roll"; Elvis Presley; was stationed during his Army enlistment. The citizens of Friedberg have honored this American soldier by erecting a statue of him in the center of the city. Also on Ray Barracks is the "Elvis A. Presley Dining Facility" operated by 1st Battalion, 37th Armored Regiment.
