Working here in a remote base in Afghanistan we are grateful for the four channels of American Forces Network TV we have access to ("Curling dominates prime time," letter, Feb. 24).

AFN’s coverage has allowed our international group to fully enjoy the Olympics. We are in unison that the coverage of curling is a great change from the standard event coverage the major networks have forced down our throats over the past years.

If the letter writer doesn’t like the shows AFN is broadcasting, she can change the channel. I am sure she has more than four options. Curling is a great team sport that is full of strategy and is well-known and played in America. The letter writer needs to open up to different sporting events and explore new worlds.
