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.
