I was number ONE in the draft lottery. I was to graduate in December, 1969shortly after the lottery. Word can down that we could get a one year deferment by going to graduate school. I found money for a fellowship and started graduate school. I planned on trying to get into the reserves or something else. I should have known better. I was drafted anyway, although my induction was postponed for one year. I entered the service in January 1971 and served most of my time in Germany.
