ATLANTA (AP) -- An Army veteran in Georgia won $250,000 playing
the lottery just day before his return to Afghanistan.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Gregg Curry bought
a winning Georgia Lottery Cool Cash ticket in Fayetteville.

He was home for two weeks from Bagram Airfield, where he has
been stationed for the past seven months.

The 47-year-old father of three and a master sergeant with the
Third U.S. Army Forces Central Command, is scheduled to return to
Afghanistan Monday.

Curry told lottery officials that he plans to use his $250,000
to pay bills and take a vacation after he returns from the Mideast.
