One Lubbock sailor returned home from Iraq just in time to play the Texas Lotto.
Last month NewsChannel 11 was there when Airman Joshua Ridener returned home from Iraq. Apparently, one of the first things he did was buy an instant scratch-off ticket. As luck would have it, he won a thousand dollars! According to his mother, Ridener was stationed to a Naval Air Station in California just after claiming his prize.
By the way the winning ticket was purchased at the Lubbock Town and Country located at 3401 98th Street.
