Thank You

Dear Lt Alfred Kincer, Thank you for your service as a Tank Unit Commander. Your 73rd birthday was 5 days ago, happy birthday. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is Advent, and almost Christmas. The time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage, guidance and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

2017 Memorial Day Remembrance of Al Kincer

I shared a BOQ apartment with Al at Fort Knox, Kentucky from January to April 1970 as armor officer classmates(class AOB-13). Al was a terrific guy and is sorely missed by his friends. He made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam serving in the U.S. Army which he dearly loved. RIP First Lieutenant Al Kincer!

To Friend From Long Ago

Al and I were basketball buddies and friends while we were living in Rome Italy. We both went to Notre Dame International School there and after I returned from Vietnam in 1970 I learned of his passing. I think of him often and when a commemorative wall came to the Texas State fair, I traced his name on paper. I treasure that tracing. I made it home and unfortunately he did not. Be restful with God my friend.

Remembering my brother

I heard no stately march for you,
No band played, the pipers did not come
And we did not crowd the streets in mournful weeping wild.
As you passed by.
This had never been the plan for you.
You, born of the dreams of those who came back from another war.
You owned the world they saved for you,
golden boys, meant to be the fastest,
the brightest, the best of all.
But old men had old dreams for the world they had won
and boys die for old men's dreams.
We are listening still to hear your your visions and imaginings.
I cock my ear, but only the silence of those who dream eternally do I hear.
My hand moves along the roll call of names engraved in stone.
The deep etchings emptying my heart of bitterness.
At last, my mourning heart is ready and so I play a march for you,
ghostly pipers pipe you through the streets.
Slowly I beat the drum for you.
And you pass by, just out of reach, always golden, always bright.
(Deborah Kincer Hanus, sister)
