On many days, high school student Tommy O'Connor doesn't have enough money for lunch, KPIX reports.

But that didn't stop him from doing the right thing when he found a wallet containing more than $2,000 in cash in it.

“With us living month-to-month, it is a big chunk of money and I’m so proud of him that he did that,” Tommy's father Ron told the station.

The wallet was reunited with its rightful owner, a military veteran, who left $50 for the teen.

Tommy's mother, Sherry, expressed her admiration for her son in a text. “I’m very proud of you son. Ms. Kalra called me. Wow your [sic] one in a million. Love you to the moon and back.”

His response? “You should be thanking yourself You raised me.”
