Thanks for stopping by SIGNAL Scape and for your comment. I understand your point; however, I think it's important for the troops to have a little bit of luxury while they're deployed, and cigars often are considered a luxury. I'm sure the soldiers are welcome to decline the cigars if they choose. The important thing is that the soldiers know we remember them and appreciate them for all they do, however you decide to show your support.
