Photo Spotlight: Royal Netherlands Navy Officers Visit Graceland

June 12, 2012

This week's photo spotlight features two officers of the Royal Netherlands Navy and members of the European fan club ElvisMatters who recently came to visit Graceland.

Harry Egbers and Lieutenant Commander Chaplain Fred Omvlee are on a four month deployment in the Caribbean with the HNLMS Amsterdam. On a leave in Florida, they took the opportunity as lifelong Elvis fans to fly to Memphis and visit Graceland.

Out of respect for Elvis, they gave a military salute in the Meditation Garden. They also visited Sun Studios, Forest Hill Cemetery, and Tupelo during their trip to the States. Chaplain Fred Omvlee currently organizes the Elvis Gospel services in the Netherlands.
