Thank both of you for your service. I was in Baghdad for a year myself (Camp Victory) and I know how you feel about missing hunting and fishing. If either of you get some leave this fall and want to go when you get home I can take you to my club in Mississippi. Let me know if you have any interest!
FYI, after one particularly bad attack one day the Chaplain came to visit us. He told me that the saddest thing he had seen in Iraq was not the death of young soldiers, but those that had lost their private parts but were otherwise healthy. After that day, I never went outside without my groin protector on! Be safe!
