Famous people that were out of harms way

  1. When I think of the drafts and famous people, two names spring to mind instantly. One is Elvis Presley, and the other is Clark Gable. Both men used their military time as free PR. Elvis was the right age for it, but Gable was a middle-aged man. Both were put into positions that kept them out of harm. Who would want to be responsible for getting either of these legends killed? Do you think it was right for celebrities to have special treatment, and the average man was cast into the fire, so-to-speak?
