Caleb Craft of Jackson is learning at an early age what it means to give back. For the past 4 years, Caleb has asked that his family and friends celebrate his birthday by giving donations for the Veterans living at the local Missouri Veterans Home instead of giving him a gift. He recently delivered the donations that were received at his 10th birthday party, which amounted to $485. He also brought some of the cards and letters to share with the Veterans, thanking them for their service. Here Caleb is pictured with WWII Veteran Oscar Lawson.
