EL Scharff and Elvis Presley

In October 2008, my uncle Lt. Col. Eduard Lynton “EL” Scharff (Ret.) told me that when Elvis Presley was inducted into the Army (in 1958), he was to have been assigned to (then) Capt. Scharff’s company. However, “EL” refused to have Elvis in his command because he wanted soldiers not entertainers in his company.(R.S. confirmed this). Actually Elvis turned out to be a good soldier and treated his fellow G.I’s generously.
