“Thank you for all the cookies and the warm support from home!!!”

“I would personally like to thank you for all the great packages you have sent. I have done my best to distribute the contents to all the bases that my unit is operating out of. I would like you to know that the cookies have brought many smiles to a lot of faces. My unit is currently assigned to provide medical evacuation to all of Southern and Western Afghanistan. We have just started our rotation here and hopefully will be returning to the states before Thanksgiving. Again, thank you for the packages and for the support.”

“We received the 10 large boxes of Girl Scout Cookies. What a wonderful surprise and outpouring of support. My Soldiers and I appreciate the gesture of support. Being away from family and friends never gets easy, but knowing that so many strangers from around the US are supporting us and think so highly of the work we are doing makes it all that much easier. Rest assure the cookies will go to Soldiers throughout our ranks and I will pass along your words of support to each of them. Thank you for your support.”

“Shout out to LEO who sent a big shipment of Girl Scout Cookies to her brother who is deployed in Kuwait. The cookies were distributed to his fellow Soldiers in E Company”
