BOY ON A MISSION TO TH
ANK EVERY SOLDIER!

Talk about a great kid. 10-year-old Stephen Goodman of Surprise, Arizona, has made it his mission to send homemade cards to our troops overseas. And we're talking EVERY one of them – all 180,000. "I'm just doing it to make them feel good," said Stephen.

"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."  All the cards are personally written by Stephen, who gets a little help from his grandfather Manuel Noriega (not the Manuel Noriega we assume), who does most of the cutting. Manuel, who Stephen calls "ta-ta," says he wishes someone would have done the same for him when he was in Vietnam. "What he's doing right now...the troops will feel sure real good…just receiving something, knowing that somebody here cares about 'em," he explained. "We never got nothing like this." Manuel is impressed with his grandson's ambition. "180,000…I said son you know how many cards that is?," he joked. "And now he wants to get them all in one whack." But there's no stopping Stephen from reaching his goal, and the duo plan to work all summer in order to get the cards done and dropped off at Luke Air Force Base in order for them to be processed and sent overseas to the troops.  A small gift to the soldiers from a kid with a big heart.

 Got 13 seconds to spare? Watch a dog mow a lawn. I love how the shepherd looks at the camera as he passes by, steam puffing out of his mouth, then gets back to the business of watching where he’s going.
