I was in the Army from 1969-1971. When I was In the 98th Army band we played at the officers club every week but never played at the NCO club. This was a smaller group that played old jazz standards. I was the guitarist in that group but played flute and piccolo in the regular Army band. In 1970 I auditioned for the Third U.S. Army Soldier Show and was kept permanitly. If you type in Third U.S. Army Showmobile and dig through the photographs you will find a picture of me playing the guitar. Also, if you type in Jim Wilkes Twitter and click Jim Wilkes 1 Twitter you will get to Jim’s twitter page. If you then scroll through the photographs you will see a picture of two guys holding guitars. I am the one on the left.
