Something sweet is headed for 130 Nevada soldiers serving in Iraq. Carson City's Brownie Troop 399 is sending nearly 500 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to show their appreciation for the troops.
The 13 Brownies also wrote personal letters.
The father of troop member Rebecca Matley, 9, was deployed to Iraq in October.
"Because Girl Scout cookies are so Americana, I think it will mean a lot to (the soldiers) that these girls have done this for them," said Rebecca's mother, Stephanie Matley.
