January 09, 1971
Elvis was selected as one of the nation's Ten Outstanding Young Men of the Year for 1970, by The Junior Chamber of Commerce of America. This award had been given out since 1939 and had been awarded to distinguished men in all fields, with one common denominator: they must all be 35 or younger. Elvis flew to Los Angeles and then to Palm Springs for the weekend, where he bought another $3,500 worth of guns and gun related equipment.
