This afternoon I received a phone call from the Army regarding my brother who was killed in action (KIA) in Vietnam 30 plus years ago. They asked me for a second DNA from a daughter, or a letter that my brother possibly licked many, many years ago. Have they found him? My hope never dies. My prayers to Jesus, my Lord are to bring him home to Arlington Cemetary for a proper burial...



Today they called

Like so many times before.

This time hope didn’t die.


They have my DNA.

Want yours.

A letter licked or a stamp.


My daughter stepped up.

She’s going to give

Give a swab too.


Danny, you hear me

Mom and Dad do too.

You’re finally together.


Tomorrow, is a new day

I know, lived 30 plus

Since you have been gone.


Jesus, My Lord

Prayers are real

Army wants another DNA.


They have a match

Have my DNA

Danny, they have you too.


Found a card

A Mother’s Day card

Danny, your DNA.


My Jesus, My Lord

Bring him home.

To rest beside Mom & Dad.
