I really didn't have a choice. Back in day , there was a lottery of sorts , the draft board . They take anybody 19 years of age , throw numbers in a tumbler , 1-365 and they would pull numbers. Each number
was relative to the day you were born. I was 11 so I actually won a lottery once. They don't give you a whole lot of career choice , they more or less put you and make you what they needed.
Really didn't want to go. Had a good job , custom Harley , my own little crib , oh well , life goes on.
