Maj. Joe Farquhar: Combat stress relief

Thank you for your online paper. I am currently deployed to southern Iraq. I read your paper every night when the Internet is up. I can read where the temperature that day is only 82 degrees in Steamboat, and I then can close my eyes and feel the crisp, sweet mountain air on my face, image tubing downtown with the cool waters of the Yampa at my feet. This takes me away from my world of 125-degree heat, body armor and violence. Instant combat stress relief. Thanks for the Yampa Valley curse.
