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

Did anyone have a better Veterans Day than THIS guy?

70-year-old Ernest Dodson served in the U.S. Army and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.

And 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.
