This past weekend was Veteran’s Day, and in honor of that, this week’s Random Act of Kid-ness is Our Military Kids‘ “2011 Military Kid of the Year.” 11 year old Tristan Fissette from Illinois was given this award in honor of the time he spends volunteering at a local food pantry feeding the hungry. He also volunteers by helping new students at his school.
“These grants help our military kids understand that America really appreciates the service and sacrifices made by our military families,” retired General Peter Pace said at the awards ceremony.
