These are a few pictures of us enjoying your Cigars, We travel around a lot and some of the places we go we cannot take pictures. I will try to get more in the future.
We have enjoyed them immensely. Thanks to organizations like yourself this makes what we do here even more important to us.

Thanks again from the Soldiers and Civilians of the Alpha Battery 1/14 FA HIMARS Battalion.

Good afternoon,

I just received a cigar care package from you and wanted to say how excited I was to open it and pass them out to my fellow soldiers. We will surely enjoy these, and we appreciate the generous donation by our supportive friends back home. Take care and keep up the great work!

Dear Cigars for Aficionados Team,

A few nights ago there was a quite large lightning and rain storm near Al Taqaddum Airbase, Iraq.  When Soldiers came on shift the following morning, they had to walk through flooded areas almost a foot high and spend the morning changing socks and trying to dry out boots.  Bottom line, it was a rough night/morning.

Later in the afternoon we received a  box from your organization.  Inside we found a very generous and smooth selection of cigars.  This instantly improved morale and put a smile on Soldiers faces who were previously wet, dirty, tired,homesick, etc..

From all of us in 2-44 Air Defense, THANK YOU!!  Although only a few Soldiers are pictured here enjoying your products, we do have a large amount of personnel currently deployed that have enjoyed these cigars.

Again thank you for your support.  We appreciate your patriotism and ability to provide us with such a kind care package




Dear Cigars for Aficionados

My Team is currently serving in Afghanistan, every Friday we sit around for an hour or two and have a nice smoke and social time. I know you have supported many troops all over the world, and with your support comes my appreciation.  Thank you for all you have done.


The marines of second battalion fifth marine regiment, fox company, weapons platoon would like to thank CFA for the cigars. The La Gloria Cubana serie R's and AJ Fernandez pinolero's were outstanding. A little about our deployment we are currently on the 31st marine expeditionary unit out of Okinawa, Japan and had been on the USS Green Bay the last 3 months. We conducted training in Australia and Guam. As well as patrolled the waters of the western pacific. We have roughly 3 more months to go in Okinawa. Again thank you very much for your gracious support and humbleness.

 Cpl Matthew C. Janes USMC
