ATLANTA -

A local fourth grader was honored on Tuesday for his work at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Cody Jackson says he goes to the airport twice a month to greet soldiers as they come home.
 
Congressman Tom Price honored Jackson for his patriotism.

Cody has personally thanked more than 13,500 soldiers. He's written two books and is working on a third that teach kids how to be patriotic.

Money from the books goes toward care packages he sends troops.

Cody says he would like to be a Marine.
