Boy, 11, Ties The Shoelaces Of An Honor Guard On 4th Of July

It always good to have some good deeds in your kitty. This Texas boy is recently being praised country-wide for jumping into a local Fourth of July parade and tying the shoelaces of an Honor Guard member.

Josh Brown, 11, from downtown Arlington, Texas was watching the annual two-mile Independence day parade when an officer asked him to help out.

An officer approached Brown and asked him to enter into the procession and tie the shoelaces of Officer Jerrick Wilson who was carrying an American flag in the parade.

Josh agreed in a split second and knelt down and tied the guard’s shoelaces as the crowd looked on.

Brown, who is an aspiring cop, said, ‘It kind of made me really nervous.’
