The Terminator and Me: Arnold Schwarzenegger Steps In to Make Superfan's Dream Come True
Logan Decker can proudly say he's ridden in a tank with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Arnold Schwarzenegger made one young fan’s dreams come true as The Terminator actor rode around in a tank with a 15-year-old boy.
Logan Decker saw his dream become a reality thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants "wishes" to children with serious illnesses. The foundation has created incredible, life-changing experiences that give "wish kids" and their families a renewed sense of hope, strength and joy.
Decker suffers from cystic fibrosis, a disease that damages the lungs and digestive system.
Recently, the teenager was driven to a secret location where he got to meet Schwarzenegger in person.
“Good to see you," the True Lies star said upon greeting his young fan and gave him a hug.
At the secret location, the former California governor keeps his personal collection of military vehicles and told Decker to take his pick.
Of course, Decker chose the tank, and got the opportunity to drive it along with the former Mr. Olympia.
“This is the tank that I drove when I was 18 years old in the Austrian Army,” Schwarzenegger recalled. "I was a tank driver."
After a quick tutorial from the 70-year-old screen icon, the two were off on an amazing adventure through the California woods.
After it was over, the teenager was still in shock.
“I thought that I was honestly going to cry, this is awesome,” Decker said. “Definitely the best day of my life."
Schwarzenegger added: "You driving it was pretty awesome."
Before the two went their separate ways, the actor had some important advice for his young fan.
“Everything is possible it you believe it," he said. "Remember that."
But it was Decker who got the last word with the Terminator.
“I’ll be back!” he declared.
