An Army Vet Hit the Lottery Just in Time for Veterans Day

Now this is such a cool story! 70-year-old Ernest Dodson served in the U.S. Army, and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. He just came forward after winning a QUARTER OF A MILLION dollars in the North Carolina lottery. He bought a Cash 5 ticket for $1 last Thursday, and didn't realize he'd won until the following day.

Lottery officials announced his win yesterday for Veterans Day. He won just under $277,000, and took home $196,000 after taxes.He says he'll use the money to pay off his house, his car, and buy a new TV. And he can't believe he's finally debt free.

So deserving and such cool timing around Veteran's Day too!
