The biography, ‘Room Full Of Mirrors’, contains military records seemingly confirming the claim. Hendrix was discharged from the 101st Airborne Division in 1962 and of course went on to gain legendary status.
Previously it was though that Hendrix extricated himself because of a broken ankle, yet medical records make no mention of this injury.
Biography author Charles Cross alleges that in visits to an army psychiatrist Hendrix constantly proclaimed his love for his fellow squad mates.
Ultimately it was Captain John Halbert who recommended Hendrix’s discharge, citing “homosexual tendencies” for the reason why.
However, Cross believes that Hendrix was definitely heterosexual, saying his legendary appetite for woman proves the point.
