VIDEO: The City of Marietta Fire Department swore in their youngest recruit on Friday: a 4-year-old cancer patient from Augusta. Bubba Diedrich was diagnosed with leukemia a year ago. The fire department teamed up with the Make A Wish foundation to make his dream of being a firefighter possible. “I, Bubba, hereby swear that I will have all the fun a 4-year-old can have,” the proclamation said. We were there for Bubba’s big day on the job. His fellow firefighters helped the Augusta boy get suited up. “He loves the trucks and everything they do,” Bubba’s father Travis Diedrich said. “All of us at the fire department are really excited and just to see that smile on his face is just unbelievable,” Chief Tim Milligan said.
