Must-watch video: Classy young boy stuns U.S. Army officer with heartfelt act of almsgiving


As part of our continuing series "On the Road," Steve Hartman meets an eight-year-old boy who found $20 in a parking lot and was thinking of spending it on a new video game. That changed when he saw the man in uniform. (H/T Marcel Lejeune at Aggie Catholics.)

The "soldier" involved in this news video is actually an Airmen, a U.S. Air Force officer who is part of the 180th Air National Guard Fighter Wing. The term "soldier" is most common with those in the U.S. Army.

Just thought to make that correction.

How can we not be hopeful for our country and the world when there are young men like this boy. I send hugs to him and his wonderful family!

Unnecessary correction by GP. He completely missed the true message in this deeply touching story.
