It's been a while since I've recruited help for the troops here but I met some soldiers in San Diego spending their time in between deployments doing work in their community. Couldn't be more impressed with these guys. They'll be heading out again soon and I wanted to give them a little going away package, so my buddies and I put something together, then I received a postcard from Holt's with a deal on 5 Rocky Patel cigars for $12 shipped. I thought I'd mention it here so anyone interested could easily add to the sendoff package for the price of a small pizza.
I've run this by Pete and he's good with it, but let me say that this should not take away from any regular contributions normally sent to him, but be for those new to troop support or something over and above for regular givers. Just seems like a good deal and a cheap way to get some cigars to the troops.
Whether or not you want to give the sticks to the troops the deal is here: Holt's Cigar Company - Everything Cigars Since 1898!

If you decide to chip in for the package I'm putting together PM me for my addy.
