U.S. Army Grants Wish Of Belgian Teenager With Cancer To Be A U.S. Soldier

The U.S. Army has granted the wish of 16-year-old Antoine Brisbois from Belgium who wanted to be a U.S. Soldier after listening to his grandfather's stories from World War II.

Brisbois, who has cancer, listened to his grandfather, who worked in the Belgium resistance, about stories when U.S. Soldiers made it to Belgium during World War II.

Brisbois will be in Fort Knox next week to participate in training exercise with U.S. Soldiers and will also get to work alongside soldiers in other various job functions. He'll wear a uniform just like every other soldier.
