Dave and everyone that contributed to the Troop Rally,
I just wanted to say thank you. I just received two large flat rate boxes full of cigars, cutters, torches, two kick-ass humidors and plenty of other goodies. The Ziploc's and humi-pillows are great as well. I wouldn't have even thought to ask for those, but damn, they are handy to have. We'll be smoking tonight and toasting to you and everyone else that chipped in to make our smoke tonight possible. Everyone was crowding around the boxes asking to smoke some cigars and picking out which ones they want to smoke. Thanks again brother, this means so much to us.
I read the letter and saw the request for pictures, but unfortunately, I can't take any. Camera's are forbidden in our camp due to the nature of my unit and OPSEC concerns. I kind of feel like a dick not being able to accommodate such a reasonable request, but I hope you all understand. I'm going to see if I can have a plaque made in recognition of your contributions and sacrifice of time, money and effort when I get back. We won't forget this.
Also, maybe someone can help me out here. Any idea how to get butane here? I don't think they can fly it, but I'm not sure. Any vet's have an idea? Can I just hit up CI and order some?

I will check with my local B&M and see if they have any ideas since they ship to the Marines out of Camp Lejeune often. If they can do it, it will happen right away and I will post the outcome as soon as I find out.
Haha Dave, My 48qt coolidor is full once again AND I had to convert my 1650 Pelican case into a humi as well to take care of the overflow. Between you and Bob, I think my guys and I will be set for the rest of deployment. But I will definitely let you know if we start running low.
Bob, if you can get info on how to maybe get the butane here you dont need to send me any. I'll just order some and have it shipped here if it's no big deal. Thanks brother.
Ah. Dammit Bob, this will be like the 3rd time hitting me. I am going to find your address somehow and get you back. But seriously, thank you. It's hard as hell to light a stick with a Bic or a match when you have to smoke outside :P
I haven't had any problems ordering butane from CI or CBID. They're good about making sure their packages aren't messed with. Also, if you send it yourself, just don't write compressed flammable gas on the customs declaration.
Option 2 would be to send Ronsons or other filled lighters that are cheap.
Option 3 is Ranger Up!
