May 6, 2016 (Tamarac, FL via PRNewswire) -- Gurkha Cigars and Tactical Sh*t have partnered to honor our US Special Operations Community with a Memorial Day Special Operations Appreciation Program that will let soldiers in harms way "Smoke 'Em After You Smoke 'Em."

The companies have partnered to provide the US Special Operations Community that are operating in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan with the opportunity to receive the newly released, limited edition Gurkha's Sniper Cigar and Case.

"These 'quiet professionals' stand ready to do violence in defense of liberty," said TJ Kirgin, CEO of Tactical Sh*t. "We hope to send them a little something from home that they can enjoy together as a unit in celebration of a successful op."

The Smoke 'Em After You Smoke 'Em promotion begins on May 26th, will be on a first come first serve basis and must be shipped to FPO/AP in harms way. Applicants are asked to visit to register for their free gift. The first 100 vetted applicant units will receive a Sniper Case containing 20 Sniper cigars, a limited edition combat knife, a challenge coin, 20 Limited Edition Tactical Sh*t SOCOM Morale Patches and a personal letter of thanks.

"The Sniper cigars were made for the brave men and women who serve and sacrifice selflessly," said CEO Kaizad Hansotia. "Gurkha is proud to be part of America's great military efforts. Therefore, we created a special cigar to properly recognize and commemorate the incredible job our military does, which is oftentimes unrecognized, occurring undercover and in the shadows. We also wanted to create something that represented a little piece of home that our soldiers can take with them and enjoy remaining safe on their journey."

The Sniper cigar is a medium-to full-bodied cigar with a Dominican wrapper, Indonesian binder and Dominican/Nicaraguan filler. It's 7½ inches long with ring gauge of 52. It is sold 20 to a box for $250.

The Sniper cigar box is a handsome Pelican-style, waterproof cigar case that has three layers of protective foam inside. It holds two layers of 10 cigars each, cushioned in between three layers of foam. This extremely durable case also includes a limited edition combat knife wrapped in its own protective sheath. It's not only a cigar box, but a travel humidor too.

Military personnel and law enforcement can friend Gurkha on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and upload pictures and comments of your favorite Gurkha experience for a chance to win additional prizes.
