Was 28 when I joined the site. Now I'm 40.

Yeesh. It's true what they say, life happens while you're busy making other plans.

 looks like my dear friend Rakel and I are the seniors here at 70 for each of us. We also survived the same adventure early in our lives .

I am 70 years old. My experiences and perspective are much different from someone who was born a decade before me. Each generation has their own concerns.

When I was a teenager, we had a military draft and a shooting war going on. I would not expect anyone under my age to understand what we were dealing with.

I am a bit  over 5 years younger than you and I did have to register for the draft.
I was 17 when the last Vietnam draft call up happened and 2 months short of 18 when authority to involuntarily induct draftees expired... 

I do remember those times and when I turned  17 wondering if I would get drafted, and how I would survive if I did!

I was in the last "class" that had the draft lottery. I remember gathering in somebody's dorm room and watching together as they drew the numbers, by birthday. A close friend got a low number and he eventually dropped out of college to enlist so he'd get some choices in where he went. I drew #321, a number I apparently will never forget. I felt pretty safe with that, and then they ended the draft before they got through more than I think 10 or 20 numbers.

The draft was awful in so many ways, but in a way it was a great equalizer. Except for a few rich or connected men (only men) who could finagle a deferment (President Trump anyone?), it brought all ethnicities, geographic regions, income levels, family backgrounds together into a common circumstance. Since it ended, the enlisted corps became loaded with the economically disadvantaged, who in a sense are our proxies who we send into danger in our stead.

I am very grateful to those who serve on our behalf. I am also grateful I never had to serve, as my personality would have been a horrible mismatch with military discipline. It would have caused regrets all around.

Just started Medicare this year. Also just missed Viet Nam. I think that gives away my age!
