A previous year's Freedom Award recipient was 10-year-old Myles Eckert from Ohio. You may remember Myles' story from February 2014 when he found a $20 bill in the parking lot of a Cracker Barrel in Ohio. Myles saw a service man in uniform and wrote him a note with the $20 bill enclosed, to pay it forward. Watch the video story below.

Each year, the Carolinas Freedom Foundation presents its prestigious Freedom Award to an individual or a group who has distinguished him/herself by serving our country and its citizens selflessly, and with total dedication to further the cause of freedom.
