The 8-year-old was thinking he might use the money to buy a video game, but changed his mind after seeing Lt. Col. Frank Dailey. Instead, he decided he would give his money to the soldier.

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.”

After lunch, Myles asked his mom, Tiffany, if he could go see his dad. He told her he wanted to go by himself that day. If you follow the footsteps, you can see Myles standing behind the flag.

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.
