I received my "greetings" just 42 days after getting my UNC degree. A colleague of my wife’s suggested I actually enlist, for the full three years, to guarantee a school. I did and never regretted it. I also took part in the "delayed entry" program, deferring my enlistment until early December of that year.
A week or so before entering the service, we visited my parents in Fort Myers, Florida. The draft lottery was held one evening after I had gone to bed. The next morning in the kitchen, all my mother could say was, "Oh, Lou." My number was 355.
If I hadn’t already been called, I never would have been! On the other hand, if the Army hadn’t shown me that I had some skills as a teacher/trainer, I would not be able to say that in March of this year I celebrated 30 years as a professional speaker. Things work out, don’t they? See what you think at www.LouHeckler.com
