Washington Guardsman strikes it rich

Sgt. Wayne Leyde of Mount Spokane hit a Washington lottery scratch ticket for a cool $1 million.

As he’s got two active-duty tours of Iraq under his belt and a third likely pending with his new unit, the 81st Brigade Combat Team, Leyde’s luck got the attention of Good Morning America, who had him on by phone today.

The 26-year-old, who lives with his folks, says he’s going to take his time and think about what to do with the dough. But he also says he fully expects to honor his commitment to the Guard.
