They sing, they act, they dance, they entertain. However, these celebs have also done much more. They once served in the military. Unfortunately, this part of their life was not as heavily reported as their love lives. However, it deserves to be known, that these celebrities decided to protect and serve their country.
Legendary rock and roller Jimi Hendrix served in the U.S. Army from 1961-1962. However, he did not have a patriotic motive when he enlisted. He joined the army in order to avoid being put in prison for riding in stolen cars. He trained as a paratrooper in 101st airborne division. He was discharged from his service in 1962 due to an injury. Only a few years later did Hendrix begin performing and soon hitting superstardom.
