Girl Scouts Welcome Returning Soldiers Home

Girl Scouts Welcome Returning Soldiers Home

Posted: Updated:

75 service men and women from the Midwest got a sweet surprise upon their return to American soil on Saturday night.

Two Girl Scout troops from Minnesota and Wisconsin welcomed the 461st Engineering Company of Fargo as they landed at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

They were coming home from the Dominican Republic, where they were working on a humanitarian project.

The scouts made signs and gave each service person two boxes of their famous Thin Mint cookies and some caribou coffee.

The cookie donation was part of the Girl Scouts' Operation Cookie Care Package program, which is a program where the girls collect money to donate boxes of cookies to military organizations.

Nationwide, they donated 2,700 packages of cookies to members of the armed forces and their families this year.

The 461st Engineering Company will now head to Fargo, North Dakota for training exercises.
