About Cody Jackson
Cody Jackson is a pint-sized patriot and the One Boy USO, who, at the age of nine, has already thanked more than 10,000 of our country’s heroes. Every day, he goes out of his way to thank our military men and women. As a way to thank more soldiers more often, Cody began collecting donations to help fund care packages to ship to deployed troops.
After noticing the lack of patriotism in his peers, Cody wanted to let other kids know, “It’s okay to be patriotic! If I can do it, you can too!” He has written his patriotic children’s book to share his love of America and her military, and hopes to help other children love their country and troops as much as he does! A portion of all sales of Cody’s books will go toward his efforts as the One Boy USO.
