WOW!! Thank you and everyone who gives to the "cigar for troops" program very much, the packages arrived around the 9th of Sep just in time to commerate the 10th anniversary of the tragic event in America that has changed so many of our lives.
I am writing a formal thank you letter, but wanted to send a quick note and pictures, to you and all the great BOTLs that put forth the great effort to make our lives as comfortable as possible over here in Afghanistan. It is these gestures that make the days and longs weeks bearable. The letter will be accompanied by a Flag of The United States that I flew over the Kabul International Airfield to honor the brave men and women serving our great nation today and commerate the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy.
The service members in my unit are deeply honored by your hospitality. Given the events that have happened here in Kabul within the last few days, tonights cigar was much needed. Once again thank you and all the great BOTLs here on Puff.
