America’s One Boy USO Cody Jackson will travel to Ormond Beach this weekend for a fundraising tour.
The fifth-grader will visit Nerdtropolis at noon Saturday, Feb. 15, and the Beaver Bar at 9 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, to support our troops and veterans by collecting donations for care packages for deployed troops. Jackson will also sell his merchandise to help fund other support for veterans and active-duty military.
At both locations, he will be signing the two children's books he wrote to help educate other children about patriotism, called "Pint Sized Patriots" and "Standing Tall."
Jackson has personally shook more than 16,000 troops' hands, sent more than 5,000 pounds of packages since December 2011 and has more than 104,000 fans on his Facebook page.
