I registered in 75 but never got a number that I recall.

In 75 went downtown for a Sheriff's card (Drinking ID for the youngsters) , register to vote and register for the draft.  They told me that a few weeks earlier they changed it that you only had to register  by the end of the year. A few month later, they said that registration was abolished.

mine was  153.

I was a freshman in college and we gathered money for a prize for the guy with the

lowest number.  The guy who 'won'  was 10 0r 11.  He never went as we all had the student deferment.

My birthday is March 8.

 

When 'they'  drew the numbers  March 6  was number one, and then March 7 was number two.

The mathematical odds  of 3 days picked in a row are astronomical

Graduated in 69, already had my pilots license,and went into the USAF.  I have allergies, they wouldn't let me fly.  As soon as they found out, I "had a choice of staying 4 years as an enlisted man, or be discharged, and take my chances with the draft."  I was mad and decided that 2 years would be better than 4, so I took the discharge.  Received an Honorable discharge in 1970, reported back to the draft board, gave them my discharge paper, and they stamped me 4F.  End of that story! 

 

The Military used to have an induction center at Main & North.  It was an all day deal, so they gave us lunch vouchers for the Anchor Bar.  Never did like that place, and have never been back.l

They must have brought it back, I had to register in 1980, never had a number though.
