When This Army Captain Told Him Why He Was There, A Sweet Boy Got The Wish Of A Lifetime.

Khalil Quarles, a sweet boy from Baltimore, had one huge goal in his life: to be in the Army. But since Khalil was diagnosed with a terminal soft tissue cancer, he may not ever get the chance to enroll… or so they thought.

One day Khalil got the surprise of a lifetime from the 200th Military Command out of Fort Meade! Thinking he was only going to Skype with a soldier stationed in Kuwait, he walked out his door to find a group of soldiers standing on his front lawn.

The reason they were there? To make Khalil and honorary soldier in the U.S. Army.

“It’s come to my attention that one of your lifelong ambitions is to become a soldier, so I brought some of my troops here to make you an honorary member of the United States Army,” Capt. Barndon Crawford told the boy.

They swore Khalil in on the spot and fulfilled his greatest dream.
