I was a Junior at UNC and was married and had a small child. I decided to join the Air Force since my Dad had been in the Army Air Corps in WWII. I had taken the tests etc. when the lottery was announced. I decided to wait and see what my number was before I joined the Air Force. My number was 349 so I knew I would not be drafted. I graduated late, in August of 1970. I moved back to my hometown and went to work for my Dad for a while before going into law enforcement. I did not go into the service and have always wondered if I missed out on the experience, good or bad. I am still in law enforcement today. I guess the lottery changed my life in that I did not have to go into the service and never did. Sometimes to my regret.
