 Korean War Veteran Wins $1M With Mega Millions

This winner went through some hard times when he was younger but has now recently won $1 million with the MegaMillions lottery to make up for his sacrifices. Read further to find out about his wonderful win. 

The winner is a U.S. retired army veteran who fought in the Korean War. He won $1 million in the Mega Millions draw that was held on the 18th of September, Friday. The winner is 73-years-old and comes from Baltimore County in Maryland. He has chosen to remain anonymous so unfortunately we cannot reveal his full name. 

The veteran was one of three lucky players who managed to match the five main numbers in the September 18th draw. His winning Mega Millions numbers were as follows: 

17-34-35-51-65. He missed out on just the Mega Ball that was 7. If he matched this number, he would have immediately won $7 million. Oh well. $1 million is better than no millions! Maryland has proved to be a very lucky place in terms of lottery wins these recent months. 

The lottery winner loves to buy tickets and he bought five for the Mega Millions draw at Giant Supermarket in Owings Mills. The lucky war veteran has escaped death itself during the war, so he is indeed a very lucky man as his $1 million win has proved. Also celebrating in the same US State is Linda Tuttle who bagged a MegaMillions prize in the draw that took place on the 26th of May. 

When asked about how the win went down, the veteran said that it wasn’t until the Saturday evening with his son that he got around to checking Friday’s Mega Millions results. That’s when they realized together that they had just become $1 million richer. He didn’t want to lose his ticket, so he hid it in a box before heading to the Lottery Headquarters to claim his winnings. 

“My sons were more excited about it than I was,” said the 73-year-old. He now wants to use part of his winnings to help non-profit charities and organisations. Recent $750,000 Powerball winner Manuel Reyes, helped feed the hungry needy people of California with his winnings. 

This MegaMillions winner is like no other winner, though. He has published 10 books on Baltimore history and culture, so it comes as to no surprise that he wants to make a donation to the Diggs Johnson Museum in Maryland. He also wants to use his winnings to help his large family comprising of his four sons and daughters, 11 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. 

Join us in congratulating this winner and wishing his family all the best for the future years.
