Went to Applebees yesterday to celebrate my daughters having great report cards. While I was there I found out they were also giving free meals to any veterans, a very cool move by them. I mingled with a few and talked a little bit about the cigars for troops. I can tell you YES they do really appreciate them. For them it may be the only time of their day they will be able to forget about everything for an hour and relax. You guys are doing a really great thing AWESOME !!!!!!
As a newbie, i just saw this thread for the first time. This is amazing! My brother in law just got back from overseas and he said that a good cigar was really the only thing he had to unwind and get his mind off of things (he couldn't drink). Way to Geeks! I can't wait to be apart of the next one!
