OT - Ohio kid "pays it forward"

A fine young man in our beloved Buckeye State has made news with a great act of kindness.  I love the kid's quote about a certain saying popularized, for us at least, by one Wayne Woodrow Hayes.

And so, with his dad in mind, Myles wrapped the $20 in 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."

Damn, that photo of him in the cemetery gets me.  What a great story and a great kid.  Thanks for sharing.

I don't know Myles Eckert, but as a father and a veteran, I'm damn proud of him.

God bless, young man.

(thank you for posting this, DB)
