RESULTS FROM LOTTERY DRAWING - Vietnam Era

1974

The lottery drawing held March 8, 1973, determined the order in which men born in 1954 were called to report for induction into the military.

This lottery was conducted for men who would have been called in 1974; however, no new draft orders were issued after 1972.

HOW TO READ THE LOTTERY TABLE

 

Each table shows all the birth dates in a given year and the lottery numbers assigned to those dates. Read the tables like a multiplication table. At the top of the table are the months of the year.  In the first column, on the far left, are the dates of the month. The numbers in the center represent lottery numbers.  Thus, the tabular format is set up to show the random selection sequence, by month and day.

 

For example: To find the lottery number assigned to a young man whose birth month and day is July 15,

look down the column from “Jul” until it matches up with number “15” on the left side of the table. The corresponding number in that cell, for instance, is “227.” What that means is that all men born on July 15,

for the specific year of birth, were assigned the lottery number 227.
