U.S. Army Enlists Dying Boy

If the last video didn't force out the tissues, this one will.

From WIVB:

A Baltimore boy with terminal cancer who has always wanted to be a soldier got a huge surprise from the U.S. Army.

His biggest dream of someday enlisting in the Army came true when soldiers came to his house and held an honorary swearing-in service for 10-year-old Khalil Quarles.

After the ceremony, Quarles took a ride in a humvee and posed for pictures with his new fellow soldiers.

It's things like this that makes me so proud to be an American, and proud of the men and women who not only protect our nation and our freedoms, but our hearts as well.
