I’m originally from Newark, N.J.  I went into the Navy immediately after graduating from Eastside High School in 1966.  I served in the Navy aboard the USS Randolph CVS-15.  That is when I got hooked on cigars.  After the Navy I was able to get hired on a police department in New York.  In December of 2001, I retired from the State of New York MTA Police Department.  A few years after retirement my wife and I moved to Nevada and now reside in Las Vegas.  I’m currently the Treasurer for the Smoking Shields NV, Las Vegas Chapter.  I’m also a member of a few other organizations Elks, Knights of Columbus, Las Vegas Emerald Society Pipes and Drums and a former member of the Westchester County Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drum Band. My favorite cigars now are the Southern Draw Desert Rose, Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 and the Line of Duty Hero.  For many years my go to cigar was an Onyx.  Back in December 1997 issue of Cigar Aficionado magazine, section “moments to remember” is a photo of 4 other cigar enthusiasts with myself smoking Onyx Maduro’s.  This photo was taken at West Point Military Academy during the Military Pipes and Drum Tattoo.
