Additional Details

In March of 1958, Elvis Presley, having been drafted into the U.S. Army, arrived at Fort Chaffee in AK to be sworn in. After the photographers, journalists, and music fans went home, the soldiers at Fort Chaffee chatted with, and requested autographs from, Elvis, who was unescorted and treated by the Army in the same way as any other conscript.
