Veterans Day is right around the corner. But 10-year-old Aidan Carty of Missouri isn't waiting until then to honor veterans. For months, he's been thanking them in a special way. He mows their lawns!

As part of a program called the 50 Yard Challenge, Aidan does yard work for veterans, senior citizens, and others. He says it feels especially good to give a hand to America’s heroes. “Many of them fought in wars and got injured,” Aidan says. “This is a way I can help them.”
