93-Year-Old Veteran’s Dream Comes True At Fenway Park

Dreams for Veterans | In the News | September 29, 2017

BOSTON (CBS) – Donald Hunnicutt arrived at Fenway Park with his own cheering section and he’s earned it. The humble Navy veteran, who served in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam turned 93 Thursday. All he wanted was to be at Fenway Park.

So fittingly his son, Jim reached out to an organization called the Dream Foundation. Think Make-A-Wish for terminally ill seniors.

Donald has Alzheimer’s disease and Jim says this will be his last game at Fenway.

“I’m just hoping he has a good time and he’ll remember some of this and things will be good, you know?” Jim said.
