This Day in the History of Lotteries No One Wants to Win

On this day in 1940, U.S. Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson drew the first number (158) in America's first peacetime military draft. They had a series of draft lotteries in the 70s as well. I received number 360 in my classes' one. Victor Charlie would have had to have been in St. Louis before I would have been called up.
