I find myself deployed again, this time to Kosovo in the Balkans. My rotation recently arrived. Unlike my last tour in Afghanistan the mission here is a peacekeeping mission. We initially thought we may be the last group coming here, but unfotunately the situation grew very tense this past Summer to include shooting and it looks like that will no longer be the case.
Anyway, on to my request. When I was deployed last time to Afghanistan (2008-2009) I discovered this site (then Club Stoggie) and I was floored by the tremendous amount of support for the troops from the mebers. As a result of your generosity I was able to host several vey successful Cigar event at Camp Blackhorse.
When I found out I was deploying again I did what any avid smoker will do when arriving at a new unit I polled the members and learned that we do have many avid Cigar lovers in the unit. I informed them of what I was able to put together last time through your help and a local store donation back home. Everyone was very excited about the prospect of doing something like that again.
Now that I am finally on the ground at Camp Bondsteel (CBS) I had the opportunity to survey the layout and found several locations that would be ideal to host. I am even working to get permission to put up a sign and rename one of the pavillions the Camp Bonsteel Cigar Lounge.
I realize it is already late in the holidat season and many donations have probably already gone out, but if there is any way Camp Bondsteel could be added to you future distribution sites it would be very much appreciated by the Men and Women serving here.
Thanks for your consideration,
