(KSL News) -- A Utah Army National Guard soldier received presidential recognition this morning for his campaign of giving.
President Bush: "A guardsman from Utah named Paul Holton has described seeing an Iraqi girl crying, and decided then and there to help that child and others like her."
The president made those remarks during his annual Prayer Breakfast.
Holton, perhaps better known as "Chief Wiggles", started "Operation Give" to help the children of Iraq and Afghanistan.
The internet-based charity collects donated toys and necessities, then ships them overseas -- 1600 packages so far.
