Great Photo of Soldier and Licorice

Chaplain CH Stephens, stationed in Afghanistan, managed to get a picture of a soldier with some licorice before the rest of the soldiers ate it all. Receiving a box of licorice from Licorice International brings joy to the men and women serving overseas with our military. You can brighten their day for as little as $35 by sending a box of assorted Kenny's Licorice Candy Twists. The licorice is sent to a chaplain who will distribute the candy to the soldiers.
