A group of special men...

As some of you are aware, I have been sending sticks to a Marine Unit stationed abroad...This is them...I cannot send anymore though, their mail has been shut-off as they will be returning in February...

    Way cool spin, thanks for sharing! Have you been doing this by yourself? If so, you should give some thought to letting the forum know and taking up a collection next time - the BOTL here are ALWAYS down for a good "Cigars For Troops" cause.

    Curious... why did you pick the unit you did? Someone close to you, is it your old unit, etc?

    Sorry about the slow response...I lost track of this thread...I was given information from OpFTH (Operation From The Heart) out of Detroit...They do a quite a bit for sending sticks to various units...I asked for a unit that I could take on personally...There is no relation or previous relationship with any of the Marines from this unit (except, I am a former Marine)...Will probably attempt to take on another soon...

    Very cool of you brother, sounds like it was news to most though. Remember to share in the love next time.
    Also they definatley look like some fine young men glad to hear they will be home soon. Prayers for their safe return to their loved ones.

    When you get another group let us know so we can show them what ordnance from the BOTL looks like.
