Belgian teen getting wish to be U.S. soldier

Posted: Updated:

FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) - A 16-year-old Belgian boy with cancer who listened to his grandfather tell stories about United States soldiers during World War II is getting a chance to be one of those soldiers.

Antoine Brisbois will be at Fort Knox for two days next week working alongside soldiers and training.

The post says in a news release that the boy wanted to be a soldier after his grandfather told him stories about World War II and the arrival of U.S. troops in Belgium.

His grandfather had worked in the Belgium resistance.
