Memorable Wedding Part 2

Posted By on October 29, 2005

Three WishesLast night I watched the NBC program “Three Wishes” that I commented (see post) on a couple of weeks ago; they helped welcomed home the 3/25 Marine unit from Iraq to Ohio. It was a heartwarming 60 minute program that was very emotional. The program actually granted four wishes with several receiving homes, a couple cars and to one widowed wife also a full 4 year education by Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Generally I’m not much of a television watcher, but because one part was recorded in my community and the others included the NE Ohio area and the MAPS museum, I had an interest. I’ll include the final segment of the program here, although the entire show was well done and worth seeing.
