Cookies, Reminders of Home

The Army News Service recently ran a story on something that is extremely popular in Girl Scouting - sending cookies overseas to deployed soldiers. For Soldiers serving overseas, Girl Scout Cookies are a taste of home as well as reminder that people are thinking of them and supporting their service. Soldiers throughout Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan will soon learn there are a lot of people around Atlanta thinking of them when more than 10,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies will be sent to them in the next few weeks.

A simple Google News search of the topic turns up a large number of similar stories about Girl Scouts sending cookies overseas. Are there similar stories that you would like to share? Please do!
