I'm also remembering those who have given everything in service to this country, knew a few personally. They would be grandparents now had they survived.

There are a lot of suggestions and thoughts I could offer, the most important from my experience (and mistakes) are to be flexible, be teachable, be in physical shape before you arrive, practice at the range from shooting sticks preferably at photographic targets of plains game, take plenty of memory cards for the camera and the battery charger with adapter.
My first trip was overwhelming, the second trip (two weeks ago) I was more able to immerse myself in the experience. Who knows what the third trip will be like?
