Many Girl Scout troops send their cookies to soldiers serving overseas, and some make donations through the Soldier Smile Project. The council received an e-mail from a soldier who asked that we forward the message to our leaders and girls.
To our Heroes!
On behalf of the CJTF-101 Knowledge Management Office (KMO), we would
like to say thank you for your support and the large amount of cookies
that you have sent us!! We received two huge boxes of the most
delicious cookies in the world. We also wanted to say that you (Girl
Scouts) are our true Heroes. Many of us have been on
multiple deployments and with each of those deployments there has been
only one constant support (outside of our families) and that has been
the fact that our Girl Scouts have always been there for us. I wish you
all could see the joy and delight that your support and cookies bring to
every soldier/marine/sailor/airmen when they receive your cookies. It
is like Christmas with every box being received and opened.
We cannot thank you enough for all of the support and dedication that
each of you provide us on a daily basis. I personally wanted to say
that I am honored that you all continue to support us while we are away
from our families and friends. Your cookies always brings a piece of
home with them. We applaud your efforts and your service to us. Like
many here, the Girl Scouts will always have my support as long as I walk
this earth. Whenever I see a group of Girl Scout, I will always give
them the support that you all have always given us.
Thank you so much for everything that you do for us. Attached is group
photo of our KMO section here in Afghanistan. We are part of the
Combined Joint Task Force (CJTF-101) from Fort Campbell, KY. The home
of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) Screaming Eagles. We are
very proud to have the daughters of our great Country behind us with
each deployment. The Girl Scouts will always be a part of our great
history because you all will forever live in our hearts and minds. We
hope to see and to support you and your efforts soon, as we are
preparing for our return back to Fort Campbell in the next month!
Thank you again for your support and for the huge amount of smiles each
of your cookies bring!!! We love you all very much and God Bless the
Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan
