Today is World Wish Day, the day set aside to celebrate the founding of Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The local Make-A-Wish chapter let a teenager from Saegertown know his wish is coming true in Hawaii and the marines were on hand to assist in the delivery of the news to 13-year-old Jared Kula.

Jared comes from a military family, and he thought he would be a marine for a day as his wish but the marines brought bigger news. Jared will be visiting Pearl Harbor, learning to surf, and attending a luau.

Jared will be making his Make-A-Wish trip to Hawaii this summer.
