Local Girl Scout troop gives back
One local Girl Scout troop decided to give back to soldiers oversees.
Girls Scout service unit 424 is sending over $600 worth of cookies to troops from the Jackson community to give them a taste of home.
The girls in the troop work with veterans at VFW post 6496 on airways frequently and they wanted to show current soldiers that they are thinking about them, especially during this time.
One local veteran says the small gesture goes a long way for soldiers that are not home.
“When i was on the enterprise, we actually had girl scout cookies come to us. So to be able to have girl scout cookies with coffee in the morning, while you are oversees. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful", says United States Navy veteran, Edward Ramey.
The cookies are expected to ship on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
