Louis Sidoli - Elvis II

By 1956 Elvis was already a global superstar, but like all fit, young, American men at that time he was required to do National Service. This mug-shot was taken shortly before he received his first army haircut as he started his active duty on 24th March 1958. Although he was offered the chance to enlist in special services to entertain troops, he chose to serve as a regular soldier, which earned him respect in the public eye. Up to that point, he had been considered a national menace by many! He was stationed overseas in Germany until he left active duty on 5th March 1960. It was here he met Priscilla Beaulieu, the stepdaughter of an air force captain who he later married.
