This is a discussion on Please send me Cigars for the Troops!!!!! within the Cigars for the Troops forums, part of the Cigar Specialty Forums category; Do we know how these will be disseminated? Are they going to a particular unit?
Just curious, and thanks Dave ...

Just curious, and thanks Dave (aka Smelvis).
Tim's old unit I think was 101st he's got lot's of buds, I think he would love to talk to anyone with questions just pm me for his number and don't let the recording scare you it say's this is special agent Tim Bonnette ect, LOL he is now cid so he will send to people he knows he can trust to pass them out!
I just called to find out exactly how and who. I am hoping to disperse them to as many individual guy's as possible, I will report back the squads and unit numbers as soon as he calls back.

I've been the recipient of some true generosity in the last week or so - especially from Smelvis and Teddles - so it's only right that I repay the kindness. I can't send a ton, but I'll send what I can.
Thanks for the opportunity Dave!
We make a living by what we get; We make a life by what we give.
WE will make this happen. I didn't hear from my Nephew tonight so I called my brother he was in the 101 airborne himself so he is sure we will talk tomorrow, He is traveling now, last night when he called he was in a motel. I will get the exact info as the 101st is kinda big as a whole,LOL I personally don't care what unit or country myself, I do want them to be split up evenly and I do want pictures of the fellas smoking our sticks.
I also wanted to say this is an honor to me and I am excited in doing this, I also want to say a few words to everyone! I know times are tough so don't worry if you can't afford to send cigars, I'll cover everyone who can't. Also still please send a letter or card if you can't send cigars. I really think a crayon drawing from a kid or a letter from any of us IS a big deal.
One other thought this is easy enough that I believe I can continue with our regularly scheduled.. runs.
I'll get something out to you as soon as I can Dave. We also send to some troops as well so it may not be much. Good to cover as many as possible. I will also add that we go to Sam's Club and purchase quantities of snack cookies, powder drink mixes, cheese-its, paperback puzzle books, hand sanitizer, lotion, wet wipes, playing cards. You get the idea. It is easy to forget the things they do without. A few little things like this mixed in with the cigars will mean alot as well.
