My ex got #2...
after being near the end of the alphabet and therefore last for nearly everything up to then
His application for conscientious objector status was rejected (normal for his draft board), and he appealed, but never heard back. Sweated it out to age 26, just before the War ended. He would've been a miserable recruit--intellectual, delicately built, nearsighted, and somewhat effeminate in manner (he got hit on by gay guys occasionally). I wonder if his own platoon would have done away with him due to suspicions of less than manly desires, or if he would've lost his mind and/or ended up on the hard stuff and ODd like one of his close friends. Oddly enough, at his parents' urging, he had applied to West Point in high school, but was rejected based on the physical--can't straighten one elbow completely. Bet they would've send him to 'Nam, however
One of his brothers (who is gay), served in the pre-War Army (early 60s) and became a serious alcoholic. Life is very hard on some people.
On a more pleasant note, I've won two raffles. Consisdering that I've only entered maybe half a dozen raffles in my life, I'd have to say I'm lucky! For sme reason, I haven't been motivated to enter any lotteries though (except for asking my husband to buy a ticket once). I may be the only person in America who would have to ask the clerk how to buy a lottery ticket!
