Elvis threw a party at his hotel at which he sang and played guitar for Margit Buergin, and other friends, while crowds gathered in the street below.

 

Elvis then departed to go to Grafenwöhr in Bavaria on maneuvers. Around this time he received an invitation to dinner from Dee Stanley, wife of an American sergeant, who was stationed in Frankfurt, and her family. Elvis declined the invitation, but Vernon accepted and went, while Elvis was away on maneuvers.

Elvis wrote to Alan Fortas from Grafenwöhr, and described his new girlfriend, Margit, as looking like Brigitte Bardot. He also expressed hope of a miracle occuring, that would get him out of the Army before March 1960.

Dear "Hog Ears"

Got your letter and was glad to hear from you. Well you know I am bound to be pretty lonely or I wouldn’t be writing a letter. We are up at a training area for 50 days and believe me it’s miserable. It’s cold and there is nothing at all to do up here. I am about 200 miles from Friedberg and won’t be back until the 20th of Dec. It will sure be a great Christmas this year. “ha” I would give almost anything to be home. You know it will be March of 1960 before I return to the States. Man I hate to think about it. Of course don’t say anything about it because a miracle may happen. Boy it will be great getting out. I will probably scream so loud they’ll make me stay 2 more years. ha. I can hardly wait to start singing, traveling, making movies, and above all seeing the old gang and old Graceland. All I do is sit and count the days. Well it’ll be over in about 15 months and as Gen. MacArthur said, “I shall return”. Tell D.J. uh, and Lewis I said hello and to hold down the fort till I get back. If you see cous, tell him I said ep skep skep skep. I have been dating this little German “Chuckaloid” by the name of Margrit. She looks a lot like B.B. It’s Grind City. Well I gotta go wade in the mud.
