Andrew Wrote: I would like to thank Wish Upon The North Star for granting this awesome wish to me, an experience of a lifetime. I got to be pilot-for-a-day at Elmenford Air Force base with the 19th fighter squadron. Then, I got to be a VIP at the Air Show and meet the Blue Angels (Navy), Golden Knights paratroopers (Army), and even hockey player Scotty Gomez. While I was enjoying this awesome experience, I Was making new friends like the Captain that took time to show me around the base – Captain Daniel Wilkinson. This was an experience of a lifetime that I will never forget and cherish for the rest of my life. I would like to give a special thanks to all those that made this special experience possible. Thank You. – Andrew.
