Serving Girl Scouts in Iraq

Montana's KULR 8 TV reports that Montana Army National Guard soldier, Jade Wisecup, recently spent nine-months in Iraq, where she served as a computer information specialist and as a Girl Scout troop leader. She and other service members met with youngsters once a week on her military base in Baghdad.

"They loved every minute of it. You would walk in and you would have five girls run up to you, give you the biggest hugs," she said, "They would drag themselves behind you. You would be carrying kids after kids around."
