The Military's Search for one little boy ends in Shreveport.

Serious men with a serious mission, and a seriously great sense of humor. Airmen and soldiers serving in Afghanistan found laughter in difficult times, all courtesy of 4 little words in a letter from a school child – “Hope you make it. – Gavin.” 

The military launched a search for young Gavin, which pointed to Shreveport, Louisiana. After the Shreveport Times ran a story on Friday the 15th, it only took a day to find 8-year-old Gavin Brint. 

The troops wanted to meet the young man who inspired them so much. We'll have the story, and the touching meeting, tonight at 6 pm on KTBS 3.

"Hope you make it." ----Gavin
