Here’s the “tug at your heartstrings” story of the day:
FORT HOOD â€“ Five-year-old Gaven Cox was given one wish to do anything he wanted.
Instead of asking to go to Sea World or to meet Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Gaven modestly asked for some McDonald’s food. The child’s parents laughed and told him to make another choice.
“He told us he wanted to be an Army soldier,” said Melissa Heminger, Gaven’s mom. “I was a little bit surprised that he asked for McDonald’s, but in reality, he wanted to be a soldier since he was 3.”
Gaven, who is diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, was granted one wish by the Make-A-Wish-Foundation.
While the Army has age restrictions on how old a person must be to enlist, it decided to make an exception.
Way to go, Gaven and the U.S. Army!
My wish is for somebody to post this story on a Berkeley bulletin board and send the whole city into a screeching moonbat spasm.
