USAF Academy welcomes 9-year-old with cancer as ‘youngest cadet’:
We seldom hear about the good our military do and I thoughwe all could use a smile and a "thank you" to our military. Decked out in a kid-sized flight suit, Je’Moni Ford, 9, became the U.S. Air Force Academy’s “youngest cadet” this month, quickly advancing from the fourth grade straight into college, at least for a day.
Je’Moni visited the academy outside Colorado Springs, Colo., as part of its “Cadet for a Day” program, in partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which since 2000 has given young people facing severe medical challenges the chance to experience life as a cadet.
Two years ago, Je’Moni’s parents noticed something on his ring finger and took him to the family doctor, who initially thought it was a friction blister caused by drumsticks — the 9-year-old is an avid drummer — the academy said in a statement earlier this week.he "Make A Wish" Foundation does, in my opinion, some great things for those suffering.
