How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!

That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?



'OH! My,my,my!"





Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"


My Only Son


"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

The Dreaded K-9

In the mirror of my soul echoes
the ghost of a jungle war long

Sights and sounds so surreal,
the smell of napalm as it
burns on a nearby hill.

A pop flare slowly drifts
across the razor fence,
as black pajama clad shadows
in slow motion perform
their strange, exotic dance.

The death defying silence
broken by the roar of a
noisy 105.

Instantly followed by the
crack of small arms fire,
and the jungle comes alive.

Out of the jungle darkness,
a single voice in time.

Heel Blackie! Heel!

Enemy beware!
For here lurks the
dreaded K-9

Jackie R. Kays

Dedicated to all military police K-9 Handers and their dogs, past and present.


The Dreaded K-9
