Huck Plyler is the ten-year-old son of Caleb and Briana Plyler who started "Huck's Military Care Package Program" in 2016 to support members of the military.

He attends Spring Hill Elementary in Springhill, Arkansas. Huck started the project because of what the military does for our country; in Huck's words, "We do this because they help us, so we help them."

Huck's project is comprised of putting together care packages for members of the military that are currently deployed. Previous packages have been sent to deployed military in the Horn of Africa and other areas. His care packages include items such as non-perishable snacks, lip balm, sun screen, personal hygiene products, socks and more. Huck has sent 1,100 care packages.
