We immediately fell in love with this photo and didn’t even realize at first that it happens to be Jimi Hendrix in 1961! According to Stephen Saban at The WOW Report, Jimi, 19, was caught “riding in stolen cars” and was given a choice between spending two years in prison or joining the army. He enlisted, and was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. Although he was cute in the uniform, he didn’t make a great soldier and was happy when he was honorably discharged a year later due to “unsuitability.”
