From a press release sent out describing the cigar and project:
The inspiration behind The Sentinel-Little Havana Series cigar comes from Navy Seal Ryan Job, pronounced “Jobe”. Ryan Job was blinded by sniper fire while providing covering fire for his unit during a firefight in Iraq. After medically retiring from the Navy he joined our family at the Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Foundation. Sentinels of Freedom provides tuition assistance as well as providing housing to severely wounded veterans and their family. Ryan was our first Sentinel in the Arizona chapter. Ryan had successfully attained all his credits for his BS degree and had been hired by General Dynamics. Sadly, Ryan died do to complications from re-constructive surgery. Ryan’s wife was three months pregnant when he passed. Ryan was a great american, a true hero, faithful husband, terrific human being and would have ben a fantastic father.
The Toro version of The Sentinel-Little Havana Series cigar will debut at this years IPCPR in Orlando. Proceeds will go to the Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Foundation. The LHS line honoring vetran Ryan Job has a limited production of 10,000 sticks in each size. Also, because of the cigars limited production, it will be limited to only one retailer per city.
