Commentary: Give a Little, Get a Lot

11 Aug 2011

If you’ve been smoking awhile, your humidor likely resembles the way mine looked until a few weeks ago: lots of cigars you enjoy regularly, some special sticks you’re saving for a special occasion, and a fair number that—let’s face it—you’ll probably never smoke. Recognition that my “never gonna smoke” category was stacking up coincided with the realization that I hadn’t donated a bunch of cigars to U.S. overseas troops for awhile.

For this shipment, I settled on the Kandahar Koughers, a group that has gotten much well-deserved publicity for its efforts. The group’s motto pretty much sums it up: smoking sub adversarius valatudo (Smoking Under Adverse Conditions). You can find out more on Facebook or by Googling the name. Here’s the Koughers’ mailing address:

MAJ Nathan Winn/Randy Sauers
C/O Kandahar Koughers
APO AE 09355

Mailing cigars really couldn’t be simpler. Just use a free USPS flat rate Priority Mail box and fill out a brief customs form. Even the postage is a bargain; it‘s the same to an APO box as it is for domestic shipping. Delivery will take a bit longer, though, so be sure you provide adequate humidification to keep the sticks from drying out.

Include your email address and I’m sure you’ll get as nice a reply as I did to let me know the cigars arrived and were going to be enjoyed.

But whether you send cigars to the Koughers, another group, or an individual, I urge you to make a contribution. In addition to those sticks you’ll never miss, toss in a few special cigars. I bet you’ll get more from donating them than you would from lighting them up.

    Thank you for thinking of the hard working men and women in Kandahar Afghanistan!! The Kandahar Koughers get cigars to where they need to be, in the hands of the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen in as many locations as possible..

    Just thought I would let you know how Much us the Soldiers appreciate the smokes and the time we can "forget" about where we are
