ALL IN A DAY'S WORK
I'm writing from Baghdad to thank you for a great magazine and morale booster. I'm a CH-470 pilot who's moved all over Iraq. My wife's letters and Field & Stream have kept me going all this time. First Shot shows beautiful scenery and near-perfect photography, while Bill Heavey shows the not-so-beautiful and never-so-perfect with sincerity and candor. Dave Petzal is a bastion of unbridled, honest opinion. I desperately yearn for the next deer season I can get back on the stand in the great American woods. I have been away from my family for a long time but it's the simple things, like your magazine, that have kept my morale up. For all of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who are part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, I send my regards.
