Staying Army strong: Littlest Soldier, Brennan Daigle, receives biggest wish
On Saturday, Feb. 26, a 9-year-old boy arrived with his father to the Chateau du Bon Reve — which translates, from French, to the Castle of Good Dreams — a reception hall in Sulphur built to resemble a medieval castle.
The boy, Brennan Daigle, often went fishing at the hall with his father — there is a pond surrounding the castle stocked with fish, and this fishing trip was a precursor to his 10th birthday party — but this day would be different.
