The girl scouts are selling their cookies around here (and I assume everywhere) now. I decided to take on a project to say thanks to our troops. A lot of them have acess to PXs where they can get most things they want but there just arent a lot of girl scouts selling cookies in the sand box. I dont have loads of money to put into something like this, in fact just scrape by, but I decided to get with the local troop leader and set up a deal with them. When they set up their tables to sell the cookies they can put up a sign or let folks know that if they will buy a box of cookies and donate them to be sent to our troops, then I will pay for shipping the first case of them to Iraq and arrange for them to be distributed over there to our service folks. Sniper has agreed to pass them out, and will most likely be useing them as saftey awards for the guys and gals who are being safe over there to also help out with his job as saftey6 officer. So, my challenge is this, I know a lot of us here may not be able to doas much as we would like to tell the troops we appreciate them but here is a way to get a lot of bang for your buck. Either set up a similar deal with girl scout troops in your area OR I would be more than happy to coordinate it so that those who want to can commit to send me the money for shipping a case (or even to buy a box or 2 of cookies at $3.50 each) and I will collect the donated cookies from the scouts (and purchase those that money is sent for) and I will get them boxed up and shipped over to Sniper to pass around to our millitary folks over there. He has 418 Joes on his base and flies to other bases regularly. I would love to see us be able to have mail trucks back up to his can for mail call unloading cases of cookies, enouph for each person on his base to get a box and for him to be able to pass cases on to folks at other bases to pass out. We may be able to do that and we may not, but I bet we can sure send enouph to get noticed at least in his corner of the arena. I live in an area very close to Whiteman AFB so Im sure can probably get quite a few donated, but I can only afford to ship one case. Who wants to help me say thanks to our men and wemon serving over there?
