Marshall's answer is a fulfillment of a childhood dream. "I'd buy a high performance jet plane--that would be the biggest kick," says the ace pilot, who flies gliders for fun. He became fascinated with flying growing up in New Orleans, when trips to the Naval base in nearby Pensacola, Florida were a special treat. His plans for a career as a Navy pilot were dashed due to poor vision, but he did have the chance to fly with the Blue Angels last summer. In reality, Marshall spends and invests his money wisely--he has a stockbroker's license.
Ben is careful with money, too, and wouldn't
be extravagant with his winnings. "I'd probably invest--I'm
a saver by nature as opposed to a spendthrift. I've always lived
below my means. I know a lot of people who spend whatever they
make, but it's not my nature to be that way," he says. As
some Lottery stories have proved, "money causes a
lot of problems," reflects Ben. "The key is not to let
it rule you, but to use it."
