Boy who gave soldier $20 he found wins high honor

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Friday is National Medal of Honor Day. At a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, a special award was presented to a young man you first met on "CBS Evening News."
The Medal of Honor, presented by the president, is reserved for this country's bravest military heroes. But every year, past Medal of Honor recipients get together to recognize civilians who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
For the first time this year, one of those Citizen Honor awards went to a kid -- a 10-year-old boy named Myles Eckert.
