I remember sitting in the apartment with my roommates watching the lottery. One had a very low number, I was in the low hundreds and two had "safe" numbers. I graduated in 1970 and received approval to begin graduate school. In December, I received a letter from my draft board indicating that they had made a mistake and I was reclassified to 1-A. I had my physical in Milwaukee and knew that I would be drafted in the summer. I applied to the Public Health Service and was accepted into the Indian Health Service and served for two years. I was stationed in Pine Ridge, South Dakota and I experienced the second Wounded Knee. I was able to return to UW to complete my graduate studies.
