    Fleet Week kicked off on Monday, which means Naval officers and marines are taking a break in South Florida as locals get a chance to tour the military ships.

    Their visit also means sick children at local hospitals are getting a sweet surprise from the sailors and officers.

    Claudia DoCampo was at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood where one group of officers stopped by Wednesday.
