My physical was the next week after the lottery, in Atlanta by bus from Athens. Even with a high number, I was scared to death at the physical. As you all remember, it was rather intimidating! I just knew I was gonna mess in my pants before I got there. It was an old tin building that was like a sauna. Guys were crying on the bus, praying too.
In the end I was double lucky and failed the test (IV-F) because of a busted eardrum. I got really drunk that night afterwards! I then went on to graduate school. I would have served, if not for those cirsumtances.
