This picture is iconic, two of the most beloved comedians in the business were Robin Williams and John Ritter. Here they are together at the Emmys back on September 9, 1979, hamming it up. Both actors had been nominated for their work that year and it seems neither one of them was going home without a hangover that night. Unfortunately, they didn’t get to take any Primetime Emmy Awards home with them, but they sure managed to entertain everyone there and thoroughly enjoy themselves all night anyway!

It was on March 24, 1958 when the King, Elvis Aron Presley entered the United States Army. He then spent three days at the Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, Reception Station. He left active duty at Fort Dix, New Jersey, on March 5, 1960, and received his discharge from the Army Reserve on March 23, 1964.

He then went through basic and advanced training and ended up serving as a member of two different armor battalions during his active military career. Presley was sent overseas to serve as a member of the 1st Medium Tank Battalion, 32d Armor in Germany from October 1, 1958, until March 2, 1960.
