Nathan Aldaco, a 12 year-old boy with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, prepares to eat field rations with 1st Lt. Ernest Gaudio during a Make-A-Wish event supported by 7th Engineer Support Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., March 24, 2016. Gaudio is a platoon commander with Bravo Company, 7th ESB, 1st MLG. Marines with 7th ESB and Explosive Ordnance Disposal helped to make Nathan’s wish of becoming a Marine come true by demonstrating the capabilities of their EOD robots and detonating TNT, C4, dynamite and blasting caps, while the heavy equipment operators gave him the opportunity to ride the D7 dozer and the excavator, in which he dug a pit, built a berm, and broke several large tree trunks.
