Thank you, Deseret Morning News, for your story Saturday concerning the calling of Elder Henry B. Eyring to the First Presidency and the stories he shared during his news conference. I am an Air Force officer on my way to Iraq, currently training at Fort McCoy, Wis., with the Army. My time here away from family has been very difficult. The training is demanding, consuming all my time.

When I read your story, it was as if I could participate in the conference I was unable to watch with my family. It gave me a spiritual boost.
