Giessen Depot / Ray Barracks - Germany

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. 

Soldiers assigned to First Brigade can be assigned to Ray Barracks in Friedberg, or Giessen Depot. The 284th Base Support Battalion is composed of two major sites, the Giessen US Army Depot and Ray Barracks in Friedberg. In addition seven other facilities are also part of the 284th BSB. They are: Dulles and Marshall Housing areas and Pendleton Barracks in Giessen. Housing areas in the Friedberg area are Alvin York and McArthur. The vast majority of families in the 284th BSB live in Roman Way and Schloss Housing in Butzbach, a small community between Giessen and Friedberg.
