Operation Thin Mint Takes Flight From San Diego

Head over to NBC San Diego and check out some awesome photos of Girl Scout Cookies being lifted into the sky via helicopter - to be delivered around the world to American Troops serving abroad! Approximately 147,000 boxes of cookies are on their way to service men and women stationed in Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, Japan, and Korea and on board Navy ships in the Persian Gulf, Western Pacific and Indian Ocean. It is a project called Operation Thin Mint, which was started by the Girl Scouts, San Diego-Imperial Council nine years ago.
