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.
