10-Year-Old Boy Gets Surprise From Heroes

Posted: Updated:

He's not old enough to even enlist but a 10-year old Philadelphia boy proves his dedication to serving and for his efforts, he's rewarded.

Every chance he gets, he wears his passion on his sleeve...and salutes America's heroes from his heart.

10-year-old Josh Blazejewski walked into VFW Post number 2 in Bridesburg with a big smile on his face not knowing he would be honored by his heroes at this meeting.

" We gotta applaud patriotism in our youth and Josh sets the example for that,"VFW Post 2 Dan Hazley said.

And with that Josh was given an American flag that was flown in Iraq and Army Navy tickets that he's been waiting years for.

Jennifer Blazejewski, Josh's mom says he watches the military channel constantly his grandfather believes he will follow in his footsteps and go airborne.

"He's just so into the military he could tell you anything about WW2." Jennifer said. "They go to work so we can go to sleep at night...he understands that at a young age.

Josh studies extra hard in school to overcome a severe language impairment and dyslexia.

He works his face off and deserves something like this that I couldn't provide him," Jennifer said,

Senior Vice Commander Dan Hazley attends the Army Navy game each year this time he wanted to pay it forward and give his tickets to someone deserving.

"Personally I've been struggling around the holidays and this brought back the Christmas spirit big time for me," Hazley said.

Jennifer said it means everything.

Josh says this weekend be rooting for Navy.
