Army veteran Allen Holderby, who served for 13 years, won a million dollars on a scratch-off ticket playing the North Carolina Education Lottery.
Holderby says, “I started shaking,” when he realized he’d hit it big. “My wife didn’t believe me either. When I called to tell her, she called me a liar!”
The vet opted to take a $600,000 lump sum payment and took home $417,009 after taxes.
