In Illinois, the Northwest Herald reports that Marine Cpl. Nathaniel Lieb remembers the package that arrived in the spring of 2009, just a few months into his tour of duty in Al Asad, Iraq. “My name was on it,” said Lieb. Packed inside were two dozen boxes of cookies sent from the Girl Scouts of Crystal Lake Troop 976.
Lieb recently had the chance to greet and thank the girls for their support during his homecoming party organized by friends and family.
“To be honest, I just wanted to thank them,” he said. “It helped the morale out there.”
