|Budd: Today, in the mail I received my brother's wings. It was 44 years ago that he earned them. Today, I'm just trying to piece it all together. I was only 15 when he was declared MIA. I miss him. He will be brought home. Sooner than later, I have hope. Thank you for this poem. And, thank you for your service for our freedom.
God Bless You,
