Need an Assist

  1. I've mentioned him before, but my best friend currently works as a civilian for the US Army. Wally (a nickname) was deployed with the troops for the Iraqi invasion (yes, civilians go to war too). He was there until around August. He has now been redeployed to Afghanistan, been there a little less than a month.

    I've given some thought to what he might need there, and the thing that occurred to me was that Afghanistan might not be the easiest place to get good cigars, and Arturo Fuentes are his current favorite. So, yesterday I went out and bought him a box of AF's, along with a hard plastic travel humidor to make sure they get there safe and properly humidified. I thought it might also be nice to send him some greetings from folks in the US (or where ever). So, I'm starting this thread. If you don't mind, I'm sure Wally would like to see some greetings from back home. I'll print out whatever responses I get to this thread, and send it in the care package I'm sending him on about Wednesday of this week (3/24).

    Thanks for the help.
