WRDW News 12 - Augusta, GA: "Thomson Soldier Wins $1 Million Lottery"

This guy, a soldier located in Thomson (Augusta), while stationed at Fort Gordon, won a million dollars in a scratch-off lottery ticket. Good for him. There is a clause in the Army that says you can be discharged from the Army for something like this. It's called a "Change of Lifestyle" discharge. But this really isn't enough money. He only gets 34,500 a year. In addition to his regular salary, he now makes about 60,000-70,000 dollars a year. So, winning the lottery isn't everything. I'd like to win one of those 300+ million dollars lotteries, but a million dollars, really isn't that much.
