I watched the lottery on TV with my fraternity.  As our birthdates were selected we left for the bar, some out of depression and some out of joy.

I spent the following 3 years staying in school.  After graduation I spent the next 6 months appealing my I-A for medical reasons.  I got a IV-F two weeks after Nixon announced the end of the draft with the law set to expire in June 1973.  In the meantime I could not get a permanent job because of the low number.
