F&S Tribute: Sportsmen at War

Veteran fishing
For the third time in five years, Mike Perra (above) has put aside chasing fish for hunting bombs in Iraq. Like thousands of other soldiers, he’s got a love of the outdoors that helps him cope with his mission. Here he is with munitions pulled out of a station wagon in Baghdad (top right); on his boat, the Mean Mary, with a 55-pound cod (bottom); and on shore with a mako (top left).
