MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) -- Upper Peninsula members of the U.S. Army Reserves have helped make one boy's dream come true.
Ten-year-old Ladd Anderson is undergoing treatment for leukemia and has said that one of his dreams is to be a soldier like his big brother.
The Army Reserves teamed up with Make-A-Wish Foundation and made that happen Saturday.
WLUC-TV in Marquette reports that Ladd enlisted, took an oath and helped put together a bridge for an upcoming sailboat race.
Participating soldiers say it was a humbling experience.
Sgt. Travis Bradbury says Ladd is "a role model to everybody."
Bradbury says he's jealous of the boy's strength and desire to serve despite his illness. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
