We three brothers were watching the lottery on TV in our family room in Dallas. I was the oldest, then Danny and Ronnie. Danny got # 11 and Ron and I teased him. I got # 31. Ron teased me. Over an hour later Ron got # 342. He told us I am never going! Danny joined the Air Force and I joined the Army. Neither of us went to Vietnam. We did our duty but never forgot that December lottery night.
