A Louisiana charity for sick kids granted a dying wish for ten-year-old Brennan Daigle who always wanted to become a soldier in the US Army.
Brennan has been battling a deadly disease but recently received a birthday party that included a “reception from a formation of soldiers, a ride in a camouflaged National Guard Humvee–and induction as an honorary member of the Army”.
After his mother created a Facebook page, people from around the world, including soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, have left comments of encouragement and support.
