Many children look up to athletes, singers and superheroes, but a fourth-grade girl from Maine has found a rare relationship with a wounded warrior.
That’s the case for Kaelyn Cloukey and Marine Corps veteran, Sgt. Zachary Stinson, WABI reports.
The pair met when Stinson, of Pennsylvania, visited Maine for a bear hunt. Cloukey’s family hosted him and other veterans last year.
But the two have had been able to continue their friendship when Stinson visited for another hunt and surprised Cloukey.
