I remember the lottery selection well. I was in the parking lot of the Coliseum at UGA drinking beer, believing I would be in the 300’s and safe from the draft. But after drawing No. 125, my draft board was kind enought to let me know I was going to become part of a larger organization. They even sent me for a physical in Atlanta, Ga before I got into an Army Reserve Center.

Spent 30 years as a UGA College of Agriculture Extension Agent in rural Georgia.
