MacDill makes a special day for Make-A-Wish families

MacDill Air Force Base hosted children and families from Make-A-Wish Foundation on Friday, June 21, 2013. They got a behind-the-scenes look at military life that they normally would be able to witness during MacDill's

Airfest. They toured mission aircraft, watch military working dogs and one-on-on interaction with military personal.

Make-A-Wish strives to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening

medical conditions. In past years, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has been one

of MacDill's annual special guests during AirFest, but due to sequestration the airiest was canceled

and was not possible this year.
