I was living in Newark and used to look across and see the towers going up every day(’70-’71) then I got taken in THE LAST draft! Sworn in Dec 1, 1971. Six days later, Prez Nixon declared the end of the draft.

“Can I go home, then?” I stupidly asked my drill sergeant. That question cost me a lot of pushups.
