January 1, 2011

BLACKFOOT — With "the wonderful draft lottery number of 22," Kenyon Kofoed knew he was going to serve in the military during the Vietnam War era. He just didn't know his military experience would last nearly 40 years. Or that he would retire as a lieutenant colonel.
With that draft number, "I knew I was going to go one way or another," said Kofoed, who now lives in Riverside.
His journey began in 1971 when he joined the Idaho National Guard. He received training as a field wireman, stretching communications cables from pole to pole.
