By Audrey Cooney

Sparky checked of yet another bucket list item by joining members of the National Guard at the McCrady Training Center in South Carolina. Sparky got to participate in training exercises and even ride in a tank!

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
