  •  I remember watching the draft lottery numbers (10+ / 0-)

    being pulled and reading the newspaper the next day to search for my number. That experience can really warp a 16 year olds world view. I missed a few years as it wound and ground to a painful and long overdue end.

    I've known people that went to 'Nam and died, and I've known others that went and when they came back they were not the same person.

    I have total respect for anyone that had the courage to leave the country, and I also respect those that served. It is our over-lords that need shaming and blaming.
