With his dad in mind, Myles wrapped the $20 in a note before giving it to an honored Lt. Col. Frank Dailey.

“Dear Soldier- My dad was a soldier. He’s in heaven now. I found this $20 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.”

Update: After receiving an outpouring of support, Myles and his family have set up a fundraiser to support one of their favorite charities, the Snowball Express- an organization that supports families of fallen soldiers. Learn more here.
