A gold star son honors his dad

Steve Hartman recently reported a story for “CBS Evening News,” and it was all he could do to make it through. You can literally hear him choking back the tears during his report. Why? Because he was reporting about an 8-year old boy named Myles Eckert, whose father was killed in Iraq just five weeks after Myles was born. Myles never knew his father, but he misses him deeply. In the video above, you’ll see how that affection for the father he never knew came forth in a recent encounter with a soldier. Don’t miss this one.
