A Vietnam Vet Is Literally Floored by the Value of His Rolex on 'Antiques Roadshow'

One Air Force veteran literally collapsed when he learned how much the $345 watch he bought from a base exchange in 1974 is worth now.

The veteran, called "David" on the show, was stationed in Thailand during the Vietnam War. He enlisted in the Air Force rather than be drafted for the Army, because his draft number was 7, and became an explosives ordnance disposal airman.

Good for him.  Kind of funny though.  He joined the AF to avoid the Army and then became an EOD which was a very dangerous job similar to forward air controllers.  I wonder if he was a part of that scam program, the 10,000 or whatever it was called.
