Stephen Goodman is a 10-year-old in Surprise, Arizona. And he’s spending his summer vacation SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS . . . literally, every single one of our troops. Click More to hear the story & see a video.
Stephen decided that he wanted to make a handwritten greeting card for every single one of the 180,000 American servicemen and women who are still overseas.
–He says, quote, “I’m just doing it to make them feel good. Because it’s not like anyone ever thanks them . . . maybe a couple people do, so I just wanted to change that and make it one person higher.”
–He’s cutting construction paper, putting on stickers, tying on ribbon, and writing messages like “Thank you for serving our country” or “You’re giving us freedom” in every single one of the cards.
–He’s getting help from his grandfather, a guy named Manuel Noriega. (–NOT the Panamanian dictator, by the way.)
–Manuel served in Vietnam and says, quote, “What he’s doing right now, the troops will sure feel real good just receiving something, knowing somebody here cares about them. We never got nothing like this.”
–It looks like it’s going to take the entire summer for Stephen and Manuel to finish all 180,000 cards. Here’s a link to a story done by our own Fox 10 channel…
