U.S. Marines enjoying Thompson Cigars

For many years, Thompson Cigar has provided free cigars to U.S. soldiers deployed throughout the world. We ran across these photos on a blog owned by James McCauley, Corporal, USMC, and asked his permission to reprint them here at Cigar Blog 101.

Corporal McCauley's squad leader, Sgt. Taylor, wrote to us while the unit was in Iraq. We sent them a large box of various cigars and the photos McCauley published speak for themselves.

Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines is an infantry unit that has seen lots of action.

"My unit made the news on a number of occasions due to our constant firefights with insurgents and IEDs that have taken 22 Marines' lives from my company alone," McCauley said. "With all that going on, it was a break to relax at our base and smoke a Thompson Cigar."

Semper Fi, Corporal...
