Elvis served in the Army after he was already famous

In December 1957, Elvis Presley, by then a major star, was drafted into the U.S. military. After receiving a short deferment so he could wrap up production on his film “King Creole,” the 23-year-old was inducted into the Army as a private on March 24, 1958, amidst major media coverage. Assigned to the Second Armored Division, he attended basic training at Fort Hood, Texas. That August, while still at Fort Hood, he was granted emergency leave to visit his beloved mother, who was in poor health. Gladys Presley passed away at age 46 on August 16, 1958. The following month, Elvis shipped out for an assignment with the Third Armored Division in Friedberg, West Germany, where he served as a jeep driver and continued to receive stacks of fan mail. Source: smoothradio.com

    It can be argued that your sister had established a &#y2;02tenanc8”. You might argue that she moved out, but, because local police are usually hesitant to get involved in what they consider a “civil matter”, her previous tenancy seems to have backed them off. Likely, if the police won’t find her a trespasser, you will probably have to evict her. I don’t know all your facts, so this is not legal advice.

    Elvis had an Army Military Drivers License. With it came the right to drive anything Army. ie., cars, jeeps, trucks and his Tank. The fact that it doesn’t note this in the above may have been an oversight or a lacd of knowledge but in either case it is ridiculous that the writer who is supposed to know so much about Elvis didn’t know this fact.

    That President Nixon was never given the gun is an out and out LIE! It was inspected by White House Security and given to him later after Elvis’ visit.
