New Poem: "TALCE Roll Call"

"TALCE Roll Call" is the latest installment in my poetic memoir, A Wave of Poetry.  Every enlisted member of the Tanker Airlift Control Element to which I was attached in Indonesia was a fine American with whom I was proud to serve.  This poem tells a little bit about each of these outstanding airmen:  Powell, Lofton, Yahut, Watkins, Kendrick, Fraley, Aguiejo, Charleston, Bridwell, and Bennet.  A separate poem, "Major Robert Dotson," is dedicated to my comrade and CO.
