Be All You Can Be: Celebrities Who Have Served In The Military

- By

Jimi Hendrix

Who would have ever guessed that the man who became famous for his amazing guitar playing and musical composition was once in the military? Back when he was known as James Marshall Hendrix and at the ripe age of 18, Jimi had the choice between going to jail or joining the Army, after stealing a car. He served in the Army for 11 months but was honorably discharged due to an ankle injury. It comes as no surprise that Jimi wasn’t the best soldier and instead did things his own way, including playing his guitar in the barracks when others were trying to sleep.
