My lottery number was called in my last month of eligibility, and I received an induction notice during my first year of law school at Boston College.  I notified my Selective Service Office, which gave me a deferment to the end of the school year. 

In the interim I joined the Army Reserve. I had six months of active duty, missing the first semester of my second year of law school.  Active duty, especially Basic Training, was beneficial.  I am happy I did it (everyone should do it).  I returned, finished law school and began practicing law, and served in the reserves until 1977.  I continue to practice law.  In 1970 I held anti-war views, but if I had been drafted I would have served.
