Herman Cain’s Draft Lottery Number

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on October 13, 2011

Herman Cain said in an interview
“when they had the lottery, I made myself available. The year that they had the lottery for the draft, they did not draft me because they didn’t get to my number.” This did not add up. If he had a deferment for his work with the Department of the Navy, why would he expose himself to the draft?
PG decided to check out the record. The numbers were surprisingly easy to find. Herman Cain was born December 13, 1945. The lottery webpage says :
The lottery drawing held December 1, 1969, determined the order in which men, born from 1944 through 1950, were called to report for induction into the military. The highest lottery number called for this group was 195; all men assigned that lottery number or any lower number, and who were classified 1-A or 1-A-O (available for military service), were called to report for possible induction.
The number for December 13 was 163.

    It is an important issue because it involves honesty and integrity and bravery. We know Richard “Dick” Cheney received multiple deferments and eventually championed sending American kids into bloody conflicts that could have been well avoided. I listened to those draft numbers being read while huddled in a VW beetle in Winsted, Connecticut, and, instead of being drafted chose to join the Army despite my opposition to the war in Vietnam. Every serviceman, every veteran, and every family of a soldier killed or wounded in Vietnam deserve to know the truth about Herman Cain and his apparent avoidance of the draft. The last thing we need another president that has no qualms about lying.
