Operation Thin Mint Turns 10 in San Diego

California's San Diego Union reports that Girl scouts and their parents and local dignitaries gathered on the deck of the USS Midway on Saturday, May 7, 2011 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Operation Thin Mint, which lets customers buy cookies but designate them for shipment overseas to U.S. military personnel.

Saturday was a wrap-up celebration of the 2.5 million boxes of cookies sold this year by 16,000 Girl Scouts and a 10th anniversary party for Operation Thin Mint, which this year will send five shipping containers filled with the signature cookies to American troops overseas.
