cigars, cigars for troops, operation cigars for warriors, military, thank you lettersEaston, PA (PRWEB) January 10, 2014

Cigar Advisor Magazine is a digital publication dedicated to providing cigar enthusiasts with entertaining and informative content. Their January 2014 issue features another installment in the monthly Operation: Cigars for Warriors column, this one dedicated to showing off real “thank you” letters written by troops serving overseas who received cigar donations from the foundation.

The all-new Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers, and much more. Cigar Advisor just published an article by Storm Boen entitled “Operation: Cigars for Warriors.” Each month, Storm submits a new installment of his time with Operation: Cigars for Warriors. This month Cigar Advisor published “Thank You Letters from Troops” these letters sent back to the organization from the troops thanking them for their time and effort while they fight for our nation abroad.

Storm writes “If you haven’t heard of Op:CFW yet, these are the people who help to provide our men & women in uniform something special to enjoy during the few moments they have to relax: a good cigar. That smoke allows each of them a well-deserved moment of rest, so far away from home – and it’s why many of you who, like us, have donated cigars to help bring a little bit of relief to what is very demanding duty.”

One letter submitted by Storm Boen is from the men and women of the 710th Brigade Support Battalion, 3rd Brigade Support Battalion, and 10th Mountain Infantry Division which reads “Thanks a bunch for the shipment of cigars!!!! We have been fighting the good fight, and were just about flat-lining with spirits when the box arrived. I previously mentioned to the team of cigar indulgers that a box was on its way, and instantly when it arrived spirits skyrocketed. We rallied up most of the personnel that were available and not on mission to enjoy together. Those that could not make the actually “cigar-fest” dropped by the office to grab one for enjoyment.

I mentioned to the mass group that your “Cigar for Warriors” team supplied the cigars to us, and also stated that the supply was a donation from multiple cigar vendors. WE have a package of photos to send, but this email will only have the few that could fit space wise. If you would like more, I can certainly send additional.

The team truly appreciated the gesture of the cigars and having the time to place our minds on laughing, joking and talking all while enjoy the great cigars.”

cigars, cigars for warriors, military cigars, cigars for troopsEaston, PA (PRWEB) December 25, 2013

Cigar Advisor Magazine is a digital publication dedicated to providing cigar enthusiasts with entertaining and informative content. Their December 2013 issue was just updated with their 3rd Operation Cigars for Warriors column, this one about the volunteers who make the organization happen.

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers, and much more. Cigar Advisor has just published a new article by Rick Neas entitled “The Unexpected Rewards of Volunteering,” an inside look at the work and appreciation Cigars for Warriors brings to not only the troops who receive the cigars, but those who volunteer.

Rick writes “Anyone that smokes cigars knows that one of the most endearing aspects of cigar smoking is the comradery; and I have met some of my best friends through cigar smoking. The man with the beard was Storm Boen, who I already knew from a Facebook cigar group called C.A.T.S. I never got the soldier’s name. But after hearing his story, I – along with my cousin Robert Neas – knew we needed to get involved. And since that first day, when I met other Cigars for Warriors Volunteers from Operation: Cigars for Warriors, I was hooked.”

“One of the best rewards for me is being able to represent Cigars for Warriors Volunteers…and Robert and I enjoyed our first big event as Primary Event Coordinators with a thousand brothers and sisters of the leaf in Easton, PA. The staffs that work these bashes are always amazingly helpful, as they all bend over backwards to help support the cause.”

“These cigars really do bring some much needed stress relief and joy to our deployed troops. Even better, if you’re seeking some of those unexpected rewards and the friendship and comradery of a great organization, while helping our men and women in uniform – consider becoming an event coordinator. In either case, I hope to see you at one of our upcoming events!”

cigars, charity, operation cigars for warriors, military, cigars for troops, famous smoke shopEaston, PA (PRWEB) December 9, 2013

Famous Smoke Shop, a leading online distributor of discounted premium cigars, has partnered with the charitable organization Operation: Cigars for Warriors to donate a large number of premium cigars to men and women currently serving in the military. The company’s retail store will be hosting and contributing to a cigar donation drive on December 13 and 14.

Famous Smoke Shop, the nation’s #1 discount retailer of premium handmade cigars, has aligned with Operation: Cigars for Warriors to support their mission of collecting and distributing premium cigars to our brave men & women serving in combat zones around the globe. Famous Smoke Shop is Operation: Cigars for Warriors’ largest corporate sponsor, with a commitment to provide nearly $50,000 in contributions that go directly to our US military personnel.

To enhance their efforts this holiday season, Famous Smoke Shop and Leaf Cigar Bar will be matching one cigar for every cigar purchased and/or donated from Friday December 13th to Saturday December 14th at their retail location in Forks Township. It is Famous Smoke Shop’s way to honor, show respect and thank those putting it all on the line for us back home. The company receives requests from many soldiers who have no one here in the U.S. to send care packages to them, and would otherwise receive nothing.

“It’s a little taste of home for our Military Heroes – a good cigar at the end of a day, together with a chance to unwind while working hard so far away from family and friends,” says CFW founder and president, Storm Boen. “This is Operation: Cigars for Warriors, and it’s an amazing network of volunteers working to help make that relaxing moment happen for our troops. Soaring requests for premium smokes prove that the giving of such a small item, a single cigar, makes a huge impact on their well-being. And that’s the primary mission of Op: CFW, to send premium cigars and cigar-related items to our troops in war zones.”

CFW representatives, Rick and Robert Nease, will be on location to help promote the donation drive and to provide information to customers who are interested in learning more about the organization. Famous Smoke Shop will be running a variety of promotions including discounts on military collector cigar tins and other American themed tobacco products, prizes and giveaways, as well as an additional 10% discount for all military personnel past and present.

Famous Smoke Shop released the following statement to their customers in regards to this event: “Please join us in supporting our endeavor to send love, honor, and respect—one cigar at a time to those whose sacrifices never end. We are in need of cigars, cutters, lighters, water pillows, travel humidors etc… We are working continuously to fill the requests & we would like to thank everyone for the support & donations.”

For more information, please contact Director of Marketing, Alexandra Renzetti at (610) 559-7000 ext. 160 or arenzetti(at)famous-smoke(dot)com.

Cigar Advisor Magazine is a digital publication dedicated to providing cigar enthusiasts with entertaining and informative content about cigars and the cigar lifestyle. Their November 2013 issue was just updated with a piece called “Operation Cigars for Warriors – Live From the Rocky Mountain Cigar Festival” that gives a first-hand account of the charitable organization’s visit to one of the country’s largest cigar celebrations.

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor Magazine has just published a new article, by Kris Ford, an Events Coordinator for Operation Cigars for Warriors in Colorado, giving inside look at the charity that donates thousands of cigars annually to men and women stationed overseas fighting for the United States.

In the article, Kris relives his experience from a recent event held at Rocky Mountain Cigar Fest in Boulder, Colorado, one of the biggest cigar events out west. Kris writes “Storm and I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with countless shop owners and managers who were interested in setting up CFW donation boxes at their locations. As it stands, we had almost 50 new shops interested in opening their doors to a donation box – not too shabby compared to the IPCPR. But we had something bigger on our minds – as everyone was excited for Saturday to come, and the opening of the gates to the 4th Annual Rocky Mountain Cigar Fest!”

Many vendors were on hand at the event this year such as Pete Johnson, Eddie Ortega, Tony Gomez, and a lot more. At the end of the event, they had raised over $2,100 to help ship cigars overseas and almost 300 cigars to go to the troops.

Cigar Advisor Magazine is a digital publication dedicated to providing cigar enthusiasts with entertaining and informative content. Their October 2013 issue features a piece written by Operation Cigars for Warriors founder Storm Boen about the organization he founded to help our troops.

The all-new Cigar Advisor is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers. Cigar Advisor just published an article by Storm Boen on Operation: Cigars For Warriors.

Operation: Cigars For Warriors is a non-profit organization that accepts monetary donations or cigar donations to send over to troops across the world so they may better relax after a hard day of work or in battle. Boen writes “It’s a little taste of home for our troops – a good cigar at the end of a day, together with a chance to unwind while working hard so far away from family and friends. This is Operation: Cigars for Warriors, and it’s an amazing network of volunteers working to help make that relaxing moment happen for our troops. Soaring requests for premium smokes prove that the giving of such a small item, a single cigar, makes a huge impact on their well-being. And that’s the primary mission of Op: CFW, to send premium cigars and cigar-related items to our troops in war zones.”

Storm also writes “Op: CFW has been fortunate to enjoy partnerships with some big names in the cigar business, including Famous Smoke Shop and here with Cigar Advisor. They’re a huge contributing factor to the success we’ve enjoyed to date, through tremendous monthly donations and multiple ways they show their support to us. Drew Estate was the first company that stood beside us, called us partners, and they continuously up their support. Drew Estate has such a great reputation for integrity and success, which gave us a strong start of legitimacy – and many other companies have stepped up big time to offer support. Without our partners in the cigar industry, we would have been completely backlogged with requests for years.” To learn more about Operation: Cigars For Warriors, visit Cigar Advisor.
