Wonderful vintage glossy 3.5 x 3.5 candid full-length photo of Elvis in his Army uniform circa late 1950s, signed on the reverse in fountain pen. Photo is laminated on both sides and has a trivial crease to one corner, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by full letters of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL, PSA/DNA, and JSA. Presley was one of the most well-known entertainers in the world at the time he was drafted into the US Army, and he served as a regular soldier from March 1958 to March 1960. He was first sent to Texas for training at Fort Hood before being assigned to the 3rd Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany. This had a profound effect on his life and career—while in Germany he met his future wife Priscilla, was introduced to amphetamines, and as a result of his generous patriotic service, earned the respect of an older generation of Americans, many of whom had previously viewed him in a negative light.
