Skiing;Oct2007, Vol. 60 Issue 2, p16
A letter from the editor is presented which offers the authors thought on the war in Iraq and the service men and women who are serving there rather than spending the winter season at home with their families. The editor chooses this topic because someone in his own family who he used to ski with is serving in the military.
