RESULTS FROM LOTTERY FOR MEN FACING THE DRAFT IN 1971

The lottery drawing held July 1, 1970, determined the order in which men born in 1951 were called to report for induction into the military.

How to read this chart: This chart shows all the birth dates in a given year and the lottery numbers assigned to those dates. Read this chart like a multiplication table. At the top of the chart are the months of the year. On the far left are the dates of the month. The numbers in the center represent lottery numbers. For example: To find the lottery number assigned to July 15, look down from "July" until it matches up with the number "15" on the left side of the table. The corresponding number in the middle is "273." This means that all men born on July 15, 1951, were assigned the lottery number 273.

The highest lottery number called for this group was 125.  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 Boomer Years
The Events of 1969
In time for perhaps the very last of the boomers, Sesame Street debuts on television.

But also, Penthouse begins publication... in plenty of time for the boomers.

June: President Nixon announces his "Vietnamization" designed to help the Vietnamese deal with their own problems, and extricate the U.S. from southeast Asia.

July 18: Senator Ted Kennedy drives his car off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island off Martha's Vineyard, killing his young passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne. This major story was partially drowned out (sorry) by the moon landing that took place just days later. A week after the accident, Kennedy received a suspended sentence, and that was the end of it. But many Americans would never look at Kennedy the same way (and few would ever ride in a car with him at the wheel.)

 

 

 

July 21: The U.S. wins the space race convincingly by landing a man on the moon. Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins fly on board Apollo 11. "Houston... Tranquility Base, here; the Eagle has landed." Event of the century? Possibly; we all thought so at the time. We met the late president's challenge and conquered outer space. This gave Americans confidence that we could beat the Russians in anything... if put to the test.

Thousands of party-goers sludge through the mud to experience four days of rock n' roll at a place called Woodstock. Heavy press coverage makes the event seem larger than it was and shows the passing of baby boomers from young children to adult children.

August 10: Charles Manson and other members of his cult murder actress Sharon Tate and six others in a horrible event that was referred to as "Helter Skelter."

The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) claims that marijuana is harmless to both the user and society in general.

The U.S. spends no more money than it takes in. That won't happen again till the boomers hit 50.

Hurricane Camille hits the Mississippi gulf coast killing 248; damage is set at $1.5 billion.

An oil spill off the coast of Santa Barbara spreads over 30 miles of the shoreline. This is the first major of dozens to follow in the next 25 years.

Dr. Laurence Peter introduces the world to his "Peter Principle," which states that workers rise to their level of incompetence.

President Nixon bans the production of chemical weapons.

As the first of the boomers reach their 20s, the cost of medical care begins to rise sharply.

October: "I will say confidently that looking ahead just three years the war will be over." - President Nixon.

The "Chicago 7" (even though there were actually 8) have their day on court. Attorney William Kunstler, defends David Dellinger, Rennie Davis, Tom Hayden, Abbie Hoffman, Black Panther leader Bobby Seale, Jerry Rubin, Lee Weiner, and chemistry professor John R. Froins. Bobby Seale is gagged and chained to his chair because of his courtroom outbursts and sentences him in November to 4 years in prison for contempt of court. The others get off with relatively light sentences.

Defying all conventional wisdom, the New York Mets win their first World Series. Meanwhile, the New York Jets win the Super Bowl, defying all logic... except that of Joe Namath.

 

November: President Nixon appeals to the "great silent majority" to support his Vietnam policy.

"Marcus Welby" and "Monthy Python's Flying Circus" debut on television.

The Academy award for Best Picture goes to "Midnight Cowboy." John Wayne wins for Best Actor in "True Grit." Paul Newman and Robert Redford star in "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid."

 

November 15: 250,000 protestors (mostly students) march against the war in Washington, D.C. It is only fitting that the decade ends with just as much excitement and turmoil as it began.

December 1: The Selective Service conducts the first draft lottery since 1942, affecting 800,000 males born between 1944 and 1950.
