Lamar looks rather thin?

Seriously, the sergeant stripes are incorrect on his coat -- the military rank is higher than what he had earned in 1959.

Elvis was a "buck" sergeant, the ones on his sleeve are for a staff sergeant.

Just for fun -- here's Elvis' rankings during his two year army hitch ->

Private - when drafted
Private, First Class - November 27, 1958
Specialist, Fourth Class - June 1, 1959
Sergeant - January 20, 1960

And we have a winner.
The uniform was custom made for him for his trip home and non military issue. They had accidently given him the rank of staff seargent becuase the designer didn't know. He had been officially discharged 2 days earlier.


What would've been a cool trivia topic was those before after shots of Whites station but we shot the wad on those already.

Sorry Colin, I though the '#' instead of the 'No.' was distinguishable enough. However, point taken, you can be the picture quiz guy.

I figured you were but to be honest I didn't look at enough of them to notice they were all started by you. I picked the first number I didn't see and wasn't even sure there wasn't a 6 already. Didn't matter anyway, the Doc jumped on it quick.
