‘Operation Thin Mint’ sends Girl Scout Cookies to troops overseas

The Girl Scouts held their annual “Operation Thin Mint” send-off Friday night.

Thousands of Girl Scouts were on the flight deck of the USS Midway to send boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to the troops deployed overseas.

They also delivered cookies to veterans.

The Girl Scouts hope that a little taste of home will cheer them up.

The annual send-off is Girl Scout San Diego’s largest local service project.

KUSI’s Mark Mathis was LIVE with the story.
