Man...this is an awesome story

 

 

Myles Eckert - and 8 year old kid...found $20 and did something pretty amazing.

Myles found the bill in the parking lot of an Ohio Cracker Barrel and originally planned to use it to buy a video game. But when he saw a soldier dining at the restaurant, Myles gave it to him instead....He was just five weeks old when his father, Army Sgt. Andy Eckert, died in Iraq.  

He gave him the money with a note that read, "Dear soldier — my dad was a soldier. He's in heaven now. I found this 20 dollars in the parking lot when we got here. We like to pay it forward in my family. It's your lucky day! Thank you for your service. Myles Eckert, a gold star kid."
