This Elderly Man Celebrated His 97th Birthday By Finally Becoming A Firefighter!
97-year-old Bill Grun always dreamed of riding in a firetruck and fighting back flames. Find out how he finally got his wish here!
If anyone proves it's never too late to follow your dreams, it's 97-year-old Bill Grun, who celebrated his birthday this year by finally becoming a firefighter. It all started when his retirement home, Wesley Enhanced Living, contacted the local fire department and told them about his special birthday wish. He got to ride in the truck and sound the siren, something he'd always wanted to do. Joking about the experience, he said:
I was kinda hoping for a helicopter, but I'll settle for a fire truck.
Grun also says it's an experience he will never forget and now believes that it's never too late to achieve your dreams.
Always been very admiring of firemen. It is a milestone that when I was in my 70s I never thought I'd reach.
