Without checking to try to finish out, I think Sting taught high school (english?), Jagger was @ LSE and process of elimination (assuming eep is correct which I do), Wyman was an RAF clerk....bbd

Jimi Hendix was in the 101st Airborne (U.S. Army) not in the USAF. Lots of 101st alumns in Wapella area.

Sting was a teacher. Very impressive EEP on your "rock star before they were stars" knowledge.

Good point, MPT. I copied that entry from another website, but the 101st is Army. I apologize to the Hendrix and Toohill families for not catching that error before publication.

How did that work during WW2, was that US Army Air Corps?
