Marines, sailors fulfill young leukemia patient’s wish

Marines with Combat Logistics Battalion 3 and Hawaii-based sailors pose for a photo with Carl Hornbeak-Hess (center on tank) in front of the USS Missouri Battleship Memorial while fulfilling his dream in partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Feb. 15. Hornbeak-Hess, an 11-year-old boy from Mill Creek, Wash., who has been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, dreamed of becoming a World War II Army Air Corps pilot whose aircraft is shot down and crash lands on a deserted island. He was granted his wish from Feb. 15 to 19 with the help of Hawaii-based Marines, sailors and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
