Hendrix - a poor soldier who just wanted to play with his, er, guitar. OK chaps this one's just for fun. Jimi played no part in WWII whatsoever (born 1942), but he enlisted in the US Army in 1961, and was assigned to the famous 101st Airborne Division. Here's the story of his time spent in the military, told in a series of random quotes mostly from his official mlitary record, with links provided to original source pages..... He joined the Army at age 17, faked homosexuality and was discharged after 14 months. [Not sure about this one - Ed.] http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/music/4730547.stm http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0803051jimi1.html :lol: This last link contains scans of all 18 pages of his official military record, including all the sordid details. Just to add, as if it needs saying, that Jimi became one of the most talented musicians the world has ever seen. Sadly there are no photos of him in uniform that I can find.
