MAKE-A-WISH REQUEST WILL SEE 13-YEAR-OLD FIRE A MARINE HOWITZER

What boy hasn’t dreamed about blowing stuff up? A 13-year-old boy from San Diego will have his dream come true tomorrow, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation and the Marines with Third Battalion, 11th Marine Regiment at Twentynine Palms Marine base. Managing editor Tami Roleff introduces us to Ryan and his wish…
Ryan from San Diego may only be 13, and undergoing treatment for cancer, but that hasn’t stopped him from planning his future. Ryan wants to go in to the military and has researched all the different branches and the different types of military weapons. According to Ryan, the Marine Corps’ Howitzer M777 is the modern-day equivalent of a cannon, and he can’t wait to shoot one. The Make-a-Wish Foundation, which arranges experiences for children with life-threatening conditions, contacted the Marines of 3/11, who were only too happy to introduce Ryan to the thrill of shooting artillery. Ryan, along with his parents and brother, will get to live his dream Tuesday when he’ll spend several hours blowing stuff up with the Howitzer on the range of the Twentynine Palms Combat Center.
