On behalf of all of us here In the middle of Fallujah, I thank you for the cigars. Our days are long and exhausting. (Please see picture. I generally don’t look that badly.) Our reprieve is in the evening when we can all enjoy our cigar of choice. Please know that every evening, we look to your product to be able to enjoy our moment of peace.
Thanks again,

LtCol Jim "Hondo" Haldeman

USMCR 4TH MAW MP DET. - in Kuwait just after leaving Iraq from convoy and support activities during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Unit is based out of Belle Chasse, LA. About July 15, 2003.

Here I am smoking a wonderful ACID Kuba Kuba from CI on Christmas Day. This was taken as I came in off a patrol near LSA Anaconda (Balad Air Base) in which we had hit an IED and flipped our HMMWV. Luckily no one was injured. It had been raining all day and I am soaked to the skin, but nothing beats a good cigar to celebrate being alive. Keep up the good work and the fine products.

This photo was taken during a convoy from Mosul to Bilad. The convoy was three
kilometers long and took 10 hrs. During that time anything, and I do mean
anything, could happen to our convoy. Here I am with the two things I love
most in this country. The "Ma Duce" M2.50 CAL machine gun and a quality Cuban
smoke. Thanks for your quality products and outstanding prices and your prompt
delivery (it took only 10 days to get my last order, light-speed out here)
Take care and God bless
