I just saw an old episode of "Hollywood squares" and one of the facts that they had was that Jimmy Hendrix made over 100 jumps with the 101st Airborne!
Is that true?!

Yes, the 101st I believe Fort Bragg, NC

Yeah, it's true. I think he was injured on a jump and was discharged.

Was he in the service before the 101st switched from airborne to air assault?

He was also pro-troops during the Vietnam War.
