It was just a little while ago, but I was fortunate since my number was not called. I do remember some anxiety that summer on the day of the draft. I had hoped to enter ROTC as a freshman, but due to corrective glasses, I was rejected. I believe my student status at UW would have deferred me from the draft until I graduated.
[Editor’s note: The second lottery, for men born in 1951, was held on July 1, 1970. The highest draft number called in 1971 was 125].
