Justin Sekili, an 8-year-old native of Green Oaks, Ill., attacks a heavy bag as Marine martial arts instructors teach him new techniques during a visit to Edson Range here, March 28, 2013. Sekili has a heart defect that required him to undergo multiple open-heart surgeries. The Make-A-Wish Foundation helped Sekili achieve his wish of becoming a Marine for a day. Sgt. Joshua Cummings, a martial arts instructor trainer serving with Weapons Field Training Battalion, said Sekili is an extraordinary kid and was honored to work with him.
