We wanted to spread the word about the good work the cookie sale is still doing. Thanks to Troop 8408 (Leaders Dee Owen and Shannon Dorazio) and Troop 8400 (Leaders Jeanne Peebles and Carolyn Hertel) for sharing this inspirational letter.
I've just received a gleeful email from my son in Iraq who now has in his possession mounds of girl scout cookies. He has plans to not only enjoy them himself but to share them throughout his entire battalion. As he will be expressing their gratitude, I'm expressing mine. His dad and I appreciate your troop's tremendous efforts to let our son and other sons and daughters in military service in Iraq know that you have them in your thoughts and prayers. Perhaps nothing says it better than that which satisfies the sweet tooth. I'm so pleased to have met you and to be reminded of how wonderfully sincere the girl scouts are to serving the community. I look forward to the cookie sells every season. Good luck in your endeavors in helping to grow great girl citizens.
Our Sincerest Gratitude,
Marsha and Gill, parents of
CPT Gill Tatman-Tyree of the 224th MI BN
