operation-cigars-for-warriors-300x300Our top priority is collecting and then dispersing premium cigars and accessories to troops serving in combat zones, as well as filling requests from United States military personnel on Forces Afloat in Combat Zones. Our second priority is for long term deployments OCONUS in 3rd world environments and other appropriate Areas of Operations to be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. It is our way to honor, show respect and thank those putting it all on the line for us back home. We have received requests from many soldiers who have no one here in the U.S. to send care packages to them, and who would otherwise receive nothing.

This mission that we have taken up is one of great importance as we know that some of these fine men and women would not be able to enjoy well-deserved moments of reassurance and relaxation without the generosity of sponsors and individual donors. The mental health benefits of a premium cigar are unsurpassed for our troops, especially considering that cigars are the #1 requested items by our Warriors. Op: Cigars for Warriors is the link between donation and recipient. We hope that you may be able to assist us in continuing this mission now and in the future. We are in great need of corporate sponsors that can send us donations on a regular basis along with individuals who want to send what they can, when they can. Just as every Warrior matters, so does every cigar. Please join us in supporting our endeavor to send love, honor, and respect—one cigar at a time – to those whose sacrifices never end.

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.
