Default Gave Hookahs and supplies away. (No Joke)

I am leaving Iraq (Medical). I gave my hookahs and supplies away to the Iraqi men I work with. You can mail clean hookahs and tobacco back to the USA, but the time and expense did not justify it. Better to let the guys enjoy the hookahs and tobacco, that to fool with packing and shipping, and all the hassle.

Of course, they were all extremely grateful. I know they will enjoy the stuff.

I will get some new hookahs and supplies, when I finish my medical care.

If you do not see me on the forum for the next weeks, do not worry, I will be back.

ludicrous speed! You have a big heart man, and that will be noted throughout the community as well as within you self. You made their day for sure. It is a great thing when you hear/see people do nice things for others. Not too many blokes like you around as often as they used to be.

I am glad I did it. The men will enjoy the hookahs and supplies. It is difficult to obtain some of the shisha brands locally. It is a hassle to send stuff like this back to the USA, with shipping and inspections, etc. Better to just spread some cheer with these men, who risk their lives to work with us.

I really need to get back to the USA. The medical care on this base, is very limited, soldiers who need treatment are sent to the military hospital in Germany. Once I get this illness sorted out, and I am pronounced fit for duty, I have a good chance of returning here on this project.

I like Iraq. It is not for everyone. It is 110 today, and I have been chugging down water, to cope with the heat. The dust is bad as well. No place for a sick person.

Hope you get back safe and sound Charles. Let me know when you get in the states and we will see what we can do about replacing your stuff. You sacrificed your stuff to my brothers and sisters over there and I would like to help you get some stuff back. PM me and we will get you fixed back up.

That is a generous offer. You need not replace anything. But- When I come back, if you wish to donate some supplies,etc. for the American troops, I will be more than glad to work with you. Some of the soldiers here smoke hookah, (a rumor got around, that American soldiers were forbidden from smoking hookah, that is false.)

We also collect soap,toothpaste, personal care items for the troops. These guys (and women) work 12 hours shifts in 110 degree heat, in 100 pounds of body armor. They deserve a hot shower after their work.

We can always use snuff, the soldiers use it up fast. (I personally do not use any chewing tobacco).

We can talk about it when I return.

My command sends stuff out regularly so if any board members would like to donate items or $$ to purchase items I will be more than happy to accept those donations. PM me for my address or Paypal address. What they need most, toiletries, Beef Jerky(Can never get enough of that) Magazines(Non military related) Movies, Chewing tobacco, and hookah supplies. Let me know if you guys would like to donate. As many of you know I am Active Duty Navy and work on the Admiral's Staff here in New Orleans and have been on active duty for 16-1/2 years. I have references in case you would like to check on me.

Thanks for the offers, everyone. Please though, hold off on sending anything to Iraq, until I can get my medical care completed, and then return. I will keep you informed.

I am deeply touched at this generosity. I have no need to be paid back. The troops here, though will appreciate anything you care to donate. Skoal and other dipping tobacco is highly prized. Magazines, sporting goods, etc. also are in demand.

Just arrived back at my residence in Lorton VA a couple of hours ago. Will fly up to Fort Wayne IN on Sunday, and see the doctor on Tuesday. I forgot about the holiday on Monday. I flew from Kuwait to Washington DC, 14 hours, not a bad flight.

I appreciate all the kind words, and wishes. If the doctors pronounce me fit for duty in Iraq, I will be traveling back soon.
