An eight year old boy, whose father was killed in action when he was a baby, found $20 — and gave it to a Soldier to thank him for his service. Miles Eckert said, “I kinda wanted to get a video game but changed my mind.”
“Because he was a soldier and soldiers remind me of my dad.”
– Miles Eckert, a Gold Star Kid
Army Sgt. Andy Eckert was killed in Iraq just five weeks after Miles was born.
