Episode Summary

The Case of the Coin Purloined (Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri)
Los Viajeros are invited to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri to perform for the troops there. They meet up with General Castro, who provides them with a Coin of Excellence. Carlos gives the coin to Buster to hold on to, and Buster is shocked when it goes missing. Worried about what Carlos will think, Buster at first blames the loss on his own negligence until he discovers a mysterious note in his pocket that leads him to believe the coin has been stolen. Buster enlists the help of a girl named Erin and her little sister, Hannah. Buster learns that Erin's father is serving in the military in Iraq and the two discuss what that's like for her. Buster agrees that they can send the postcard about the case to her father. The two get to work cracking the mystery and find themselves headed into the desert. They then take part in an obstacle course, hoping to track down clues. In the end, they make a surprising discovery as to what actually happened to the coin and Buster earns a reward of his own for his work.moreless
