The next stop for Liberty Lake’s Kramer family might be Orlando. Thanks to their son Jack Kramer’s dancing skills, the Kramers will be awarded a free family vacation to Universal Studios if their son is one of the winners of “Military Kids Have Talent.”

Kramer, 7, is competing with four other children in the ages 7-9 category.

“Military kids, especially our nation’s hidden helpers, represent the patriotism, selflessness and bravery that makes America so special,” said Steve Schwab, CEO of Elizabeth Dole Foundation, in a news release.

“Through ‘Military Kids Have Talent,’ an emotional and recreational outlet for kids and their families, we’re thrilled to spotlight our country’s youngest heroes and celebrate the unique talents they have to offer.”
