Jimi Hendrix Are You Experienced? T-Shirt

Jimi Hendrix got into trouble with the law twice for riding in a stolen car.

He was given a choice between spending two years in prison or joining the army. Hendrix chose the latter and enlisted on May 31, 1961.

After completing boot camp, he was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division and stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

His commanding officers and fellow soldiers considered him to be a sub-par soldier: he slept while on duty, had little regard for regulations, required constant supervision, and showed no skill as a marksman.

For these reasons, his commanding officers submitted a request that Hendrix be discharged from the military after he had served only one year. Hendrix did not object when the opportunity arose to do so.

Hendrix would later tell reporters that he received a medical discharge after breaking his ankle during his 26th parachute jump.

The 2005 biography Room Full of Mirrors by Charles Cross claims that Hendrix faked being homosexual—claiming to have fallen in love with a fellow soldier—in order to be discharged, but has never produced any sound evidence to support this contention.
