I thought I was just lucky but after I watched the lottery at my parents’ house everything changed.  My birthdate of September 14 was drawn first.

I went in the Army and after basic I was told I would drive a Tracker Trailer in Vietnam. I was assigned to the 534th Transportation Company. Half our guys were on drugs. Being a line hall unit we went everywhere.  Some days we had confessions and I knew were going some place not so good. 

I think I have seen Hell, but that was yesterday.  I have a wonderful wife and she understands me. By the way the rat dreams have quit. Yes I was No. 1.
