Meredith and Amanda Allen were the top cookie sellers in the troop, selling 1,500 boxes for the soldiers. Meanwhile, Operation American Soldier partnered with the Girl Scouts to pay for shipping and the Disabled American Veterans, American Legion Post #35, Grand Traverse Veterans Coalition, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2780 and the American Legion Auxiliary also contributed to the project.

“We appreciate the hard work of the Girl Scouts to sell these cookies for our military troops. We are glad to assist with the shipping to our men and women in uniform across the globe fighting for our freedom,” said Neal Horning, vice chairman of the Grand Traverse Veterans Coalition.

Christine Stalsonburg, chair of Operation American Solider, echoed Neal’s sentiments, adding, “We appreciate the support from the community in purchasing (these) wonderful cookies.”
