Thanks Tracy I really needed this!
Thank you very much from all the service members you have supported!!!! Do not worry my friend, even though you never actually served in the military, as you say, you have served along side and supported us military men and women proudly and with distinction. I understand how bad it hurts you to have to take a back seat to something you have developed that provides the comforts of home to so many men and women alike however, the tradition will be carried on with the same passion as you provided, rest asured. You will always be able to look back with pride and say "I started that".
I will be home on some much needed rest and relaxation in Mar, I will definitely look you up; if I have to get Russ to take me to see you I promise. I think Vinnie is moving the herf to try and accomadate my visit, should be a great time.
Eric--Thank you for volunteering to keep Dave's service going which helps us deployed service members. I am the President of the Kabul International Airport chapter of the Tali-banned Cigar Aficionado Club. We currently have 50 members and hold monthly meetings to get together for some BOTL fellowship. However, many sneak away from our busy schedules to enjoy a daily 1400 stick. My address is below if you wish to donate to our cause, our stock is currently running a little low.
