Lewis Hindman was born on Feb. 23, 1935 and has lived in Fayette County all of his life, except for the time he served in the U.S. Army. Hindman was drafted into the Army in 1958, and after spending a short time getting processed at the Fort Chafee, Ark. reception station, he was sent to Fort Hood, Texas to receive his basic training and advanced training in artillery. Shortly before Hindman’s arrival at the base in Texas, another green Army recruit had also been sent to the base for basic training, a recruit by the name of Elvis Presley.
