Love the website. Thorough, but simple. The way it ought to be. Kevin Walsh, Boston.

What would you think of an athlete who four months prior to the Olympics in Vancouver was serving under enemy fire in Afghanistan or Iraq? It happened in 1972. Stu Irving, four months prior to the Sapporo Games, was in the MeKong Delta of Vietnam. In fact, he was told if he was cut from the team before the Games, he would have to return to the jungles and finish his second tour of duty. Pretty amazing eh? - Tom, Author "Striking Silver"

I wonder what Olympic Hockey fans think of the tournament so far?

The stories about Vietnam and the players who served are unbelievable. Can you imagine that happening in this day and age? Truly incredible stories.
