“In the early morning hours of Patriots’ Day, John and his family enjoyed VIP seating and a special welcome at the Lexington Battle reenactment. John then joined the Acton Minute Men for their march to Concord, where he and his drum led the way to the North Bridge for the battle demonstration. John played the official drum commands, alerting the reenactors to fire their muskets.
When asked about his favorite part of the wish, John said without wavering, “Marching with the Acton Minutemen on the old North Bridge. I was there playing the drum commands, and they all fired when I played the commands.” John’s wish magnified the collective strength, heart, and compassion at the core of the Make-A-Wish mission. It didn’t even matter that the official events were canceled [due to weather]; the community came out to support this young man and his wish.” Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island http://akwa.wish.org/wishes/wish-stories/wish-to-be/john-revolutionary-war-drummer
