Fallen Soldier’s Son to Receive Exciting Experience in California

Like many young boys whose father serves in the military, Spencer looked up to his dad a great deal.  He wanted to be just like him. When his dad, Asbury F. Hawn, deployed to Afghanistan, Spencer waited every day for his father to return.  But Spencer’s dad didn’t come home. One awful day his mother had to sit down with her son and explain to him that his Daddy had given his life in the service of his country and was never coming home.

As time passed, Spencer became more withdrawn and coping with his father’s loss was more difficult. Because Spencer had dreamed of visiting Legoland with his father, his mom contacted Soldier’s Wish and requested our help. 

Soldier’s Wish is proud to help the family of one of our fallen heroes by taking Spencer and his brother, Jonathan, on a trip to get them out of their normal environment and help with the healing process.
