I'm humbled that the US Navy has chosen to invite me out to spend a day aboard CVN-77, the USS George H.W. Bush aircraft carrier, on patrol somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean. Additionally, I'll get to spend some time with the men and women of the Navy and Norfolk Navy Base, the world's largest Navy base, and Naval Station Oceana, to see what they do every day in defense of our country.
As a thank you, I wanted to bring a care package from Northwest Ohio. This is where you can help!
We're collecting "Cigars For Sailors" with our friends at Third Street Cigar in Waterville. Donate a few bucks, or buy a couple extra cigars, and I'll hand deliver them to the sailors and Marines on station in Norfolk, Oceana, and on board the Bush. It will be a personal way for them to relax, know we thank them for their service, and care about them. Think of it as a "Victory Cigar" from Toledo!
Third Street Cigar is located at 20 N 3rd Street in Waterville, or call 419-441-0020. Please donate by Wednesday 10/31 at 10:00PM. I'll be delivering the cigars on 11/1-11/4.
