The "Good Stuff:" Marine Runs with Kid

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a marine proves you never leave a man behind, even if that "man" happens to be 9-years-old.

Marine Lance Corporal Myles Kerr was taking part in a 5K race when on leave. To show solidarity with his comrades, he ran in his combat boots and gear. That's when he notices a little boy struggling to keep up.

9-year-old Boden Fuchs had fallen back and lost his family. He wanted to quit, but he saw Corporal Kerr and asked, "Sir, can you run with me?" and that is exactly what Kerr did, seeing the boy through, all the way to the end.

    Nice story but too hard to get to; commercial, chatting and smiling commentators, then no video and only pictures! Won't be back to "Good Stuff."
