Random quote: "My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite, smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them." ~ Winston Churchill (on dining, during a conversation with King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia)

So it is Memorial Day weekend here in the States and it's a time to honor our Veterans that have given up their lives for us. Even though I was not born before my Great Uncle was K.I.A in Vietnam I still plan on having a good drink and a nice Cigar or 2 ( Thinking  Cohiba (Cuban) Maduro 5 Genios &
Drew Estate Undercrown Flying Pig (XLR) )  in his honor and honor of our Vets.
 
 
Here is the virtual wall  for my Uncle if anyone wants to look as it. If anyone wants to share stuff like this for their loved ones please feel free.  http://www.virtualwall.org/dt/TruettQH01a.htm
 
 
 
P.S  The picture is the only one of him I have with him and my Grandma in it.

I plan on enjoying a few cigars this weekend. My special Memorial Day cigar will be a Camacho Liberty 2010, whilst thinking of both my grandpas, who proudly served in the US Navy. And, to thank those who gave their all so that we may all enjoy this wonderful thing called life.

My father was a WWII vet, his cigar of choice was awake a Baccarat. I'm not sure I have any so a trip to the smoke shop might be in order.

I was thinking and it is hard to believe he's been gone ten years. We are losing the "greatest generation" at an alarming rate.

You are correct we are losing them at a scray rate. It's cool you at least know what he enjoyed and can smoke something along those lines. My Uncle was a cigar smoker I am told but every time I ask what kind he smoked all anyone can remember is it was a "green leaf cigar"

Great choices in smokes and it seems to me you have put thought into those as well. Please tell your Sons Thank You for me.

I have yet to try one of those but I see your point and a very good choice for the day for sure.

I think this evening smoke will be one from the first "real" box purchase I made about a year ago.
A Man O' War original blend toro, I had smoked one when I first really got into cigars and decided that it was boxworthy. This will be the first one out of that box, to celebrate the lost Men & Women O' War.
Not a pricey or fancy smoke just great enjoyable cigar.

Will remember the father who was a Korean War Era Veteran.
