Man, we were sitting in our kitchen in our house in Phoenix when we found out. We had just got out of the pool when my girlfriend Cheryl’s mom, who was a Phoenix PD dispatcher, called and told us he had died.
I had a lot of respect for Elvis. He could have used his fame and fortune to get out of going into the army, but he chose to be treated as any other man would have and was trained to be a tank crewman.
