I miss training with MAJ G. He is now deployed to Afghanistan with my old unit, 312 PO. Here is an excerpt from an email this week: "I have to thank you again for the cigars. I have been enjoying them, and so have CPT S, SFC D and some of the other cigar smokers here. It's a nice break on Fridays after Tommy Taliban is done with his IDF"*.
*Indirect fire: mortars or other high-angle artillery fire.
I am going to send more cigars to the unit. They won't be the absolute most expensive, but they will be high quality, solid value good smokes. If you'd like to help, and know something about cigars, if you email me at JRShirley(at)Gmail.com, I will give you mailing information. If you want to kick in a few bucks to help, PayPal to that email address. Just put" cigars" in the notes, and I'll take care of it.
I remember how nice a cigar was to help pass the time when I was in Afghanistan. The little comforts can really mean a lot to deployed service members. Help if you can.
