The box of Lemonades came from Danvers Girl Scout Troop 843, and it also carried the name and address of the troop and a big "thank you." To show his appreciation, Richey sent the Girl Scouts a letter along with a flag that was flown over Camp Alamo, Afghanistan, on Veterans Day 2010. The flag had also been flown on top of "the Ghar," a rocky mountain outside of Kabul. The Girl Scouts got the flag a few weeks ago, and they have been buzzing about it ever since. The flag represented a thank-you not only from Richey, but from other soldiers who were moved by what the Girl Scouts did.
