By the way, I only count 372 cigars in the picture. Did you get too excited and smoke one?

Nate, thanks so much for organizing this. I can hardly imagine the looks on the faces of the guys that receive the shipment ... it would be very cool if a couple pictures of the boys came back to us. In any case, I know they will really enjoy what all the BOTLs have done here.

Sorry for gushing. I just think this is one of the coolest things ever.

I'll be including a list of contributors with their locations. I'll also request some pics.

FYI - I sent two packages out on Monday. One went to a group that Paul (SenorPablo) provided, and one went to a friend of mine in the 2nd Infantry. I provided a list of contributors and a short note thanking them for their service. Hopefully, they will be able to provide some cool pictures.

There will be a third package going out closer to Christmas since we had soooo many cigars. Thanks everyone!

Holy crap! I received a box from Kevin (wescat) today with 152 cigars for the troops! That is amazing - be sure to thank your friend as well.

That made a total of 525 + any I take from the Unlimited Pass that were sent to Afghanistan - I really appreciate everyone's contribution. Hopefully we are bringing some holiday spirit to the guys/gals abroad.

Here is an update about one of the packages, which was received in good order. My friend and some of his battalion were involved in a firefight a few days ago. Luckily, none of our soldiers were killed or injured seriously. When they returned to base, they all celebrated being alive with the cigars from our package. They took a picture, but he hasn't had a chance to send it yet.

Seriously! Holy Crap! This year's Cigars for Troops outnumbers last years' by 6 times or so. Not only that, but you're getting these out before the holiday. I give up, the job is yours from now on.
