An inspiring story of a young boy and a soldier

Myles Eckert could have bought a video game with the $20 he found in the parking lot of an Ohio restaurant. Instead, the 8-year-old gave it to a solider and included a heartfelt note.

"My dad was a soldier," the note read. "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."

Ellen DeGeneres had a special gift for Eckert when the boy appeared on her show on News10 Thursday. For more, watch the video below.
