We watched the lottery at the Sigma Nu house. When my number came up I thought I would end up in Vietnam. I got on several waiting lists for reserves and National Guard. Joined the NC guard in Feb 1970. Left for basic training May 12. Before that I took all of my exams early, just before the Kent State incident, after which exams were optional for that semester. What luck! Did basic in California then advanced medic training at Fort Sam Houston in Texas. Returned to Chapel Hill in October 1970. Although at the time I felt differently, now I am proud of having served in the military.
