Vietnam War Draft Lottery

Been there, done that!

With the latest hostilities in the Middle East, there has been huge interest in the Vietnam War draft lottery. I guess you could say I’m somewhat of an “experienced expert” on the 1969 draft lottery, since I drew a low enough number to be drafted in 1970.

“Have Guns Will Travel, Wire Swinger Pleiku”While getting drafted didn’t always guarantee an assignment in Vietnam — many of my other friends were sent to Germany — I found myself in the Central Highlands of Vietnam as my first duty assignment, after finishing Basic Combat Training (BCT) and Advanced Individual Training (AIT).
