Baby blue marines are sent home during boot camp because they can't hack it. They were a baby blue uniform home. I dont know if they still do that but it must have been humiliating. Unless you have seen baby blue marine then you might not care that much.

Nope, Elvis was a Tank Crewman with the 1st Battalion 32nd Armor in Friedberg Germany from 1958 to 1960, which is before Viet Nam really got started.

Unfortunately, we've had some not so good famous marines as well...like John Wayne Gacy, gay killer of 33 young men and boys (33 known anyway, may be more). Their are others as well unfortunately, Lee Harvey Oswald is another.
