Holidays for the Troops

jsnakejsnake Kansas CityPosts: 5,796 ✭✭✭✭✭
Fellas,

Here come the holidays and once again I really want to throw together a couple of nice packages to send to our soldiers overseas. The last time I did this it was a huge success and we got a few great pictures back. I realize that some of you recently got involved in one of these so if you can donate again great. If not no problem. You guys who missed the last one here is your chance

I am asking for donations of cigars, cutters, lighters, magazines, and anything cigar related for our soldiers. I want to get this mailed out by the end of November so I am starting the collection now. I am donating 30 cigars, a lighter, and 5 cutters, with some magazines myself. The goal of this is to hit around the holidays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Your donation can be as big or small as you want. Anything you donate will be appreciated. I will once again ask that they send us some pictures so I can post the results. Depending on what is collected I plan on hitting 2 to 3 military units at least.

PM me for my address if you need it. A personal note or anything holiday related might be appreciated as well. I will be posting this on another forum to help out. Be sure to include your screen name with your donation so I can be sure everyone gets credit.

Questions, suggestions, input, just ask. Also, if you have any info on a military unit you think I should add to the list please let me know. I want to put together as many packages as I can and if I run short I have another BOTL that does huge military donations who would take the unit info.

Thank you!

    You guys are the best. If it wasn't for the fellas here at Ccom it wouldn't have been as great as it was the last time. I will accept packages until November 30th so you have plenty of time to jump on board if and when you can. I plan on the first package going out in about 12 days for Thanksgiving.

    As before I will update this thread. I will photograph the package before it goes so you all can see what was donated. I will NOT post who donates what though because the guy who donates a 3 pack of cigars is just as important as the guy who donates a box. When the troops send back a letter and pics I will post them all here so you guys can see the troops who received them.

    Please include your screen name here so I can give credit to all involved. If you want to add a personal note or unique item please feel free. I might actually gift wrap a few small packages so they can be given out that way.

    My contacts are the troops on the ground doing the hard work and will see that as many hard working soldiers get to share the goodies. Thanks again guys.

    All other PM's replied to. I have some guys working on getting some cigar makers involved too so I think this is going to be another fantastic bombing run on our soldiers.

    Before I send my package over, I want to make sure lighters are ok, since its being sent by plane. Obviously already bled out. I wanna send over a couple lighters, one being my first cigar lighter when I started in 03.

    Lighters are great if they are bled down. If not I will bleed them down. They need good butane too. Been told it is impossible to get over there.
