Lots of folks organize drives to send things to troops overseas — but we're guessing that Cleveland Heights institution Mister Brisket is the first to focus on salami:
The idea’s genesis came about during a conversation we had with Max Chandler of Cleveland Heights. Max’s son, Cormac, is the crew chief aboard a Medivac helicopter. Based in Kandahar, one of Cormac’s major responsibilities is to evacuate wounded troops from battle situations. Max expressed an interest in sending food to his son. Since it has to be an item that won’t spoil, we decided on salami. Soon we saw the potential to expand this shipment not only to Cormac but to the rest of the men and women serving with him. We hope you’ll seriously consider assisting us in our “Salamis to the Troops” drive. Each salami purchased will arrive to a member of our armed forces along with a note from your family and Stadium mustard. In addition, you’ll receive a gift certificate for a free sandwich as our way of saying “thanks.” For more info (and to see a very funny picture):
