Good News from Iraq

Here's another great email sent to us by a fan stationed in Iraq:
I'm currently deployed in AR Ramadi, Iraq. I had the opportunity to see you all in concert last year in Union City, IN, in a small cafeteria at our middle school. My wife and children had started listening to your music and talked me into going to the concert. I'm so glad that they did.
I was touched at how much time you spent with the youth after the concert. Since that concert I think we have purchased all your CD's, with the exception of all the ones you gracefully gave my children.
What I'm really wanting to tell you is that my oldest son had started taking guitar lessons just shortly before we attended the concert. I have to believe that you inspired him to practice even harder. It's been close to a year now since the concert and when he plays a song like "Enter Samson" for someone, that's exactly the name of the song he tells them not the name that Metallica gave it.
I just wanted to take this time to thank you for everthing your group does for our youth across the United States. I downloaded all your CDs to my laptop, because my children wouldn't let me bring them with me, and listen to you all everday here in Iraq. Thanks for everything you guys do, don't ever change.
