The article profiles Specialist (Spc.) Koma Amegble who had to leave his family in the West African nation of Togo after winning in a lottery that gave him the opportunity to live and work in the U.S. It says that by the time Amegble won the lottery a year later, his wife had given birth to their daughter, Isabella, who was not listed in his application. In March 2006, he enlisted in the U.S. Army because he was having a hard time supporting his family back home. Accordingly, the Army has helped him in reuniting him with his daughter.
