UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Girl Scouts from western Wisconsin helped give a big Easter surprise to U-S troops when they flew into Minneapolis-Saint Paul. Scouts from the Wisconsin and Minnesota River Valleys handed out boxes of Girl Scout cookies to about 75 soldiers on Saturday night.

Members of the 461st Engineering Company had just landed at the Twin Cities, after building schools in the Dominican Republic. Several dozen Girl Scouts greeted them with signs thanking them for their service. The cookie giveaway is part of a national program called "Operation Cookie Care Package." Customers donate boxes of cookies to the troops.

About 27,000 boxes of Girl Scout cookies have been donated nationally so far this year.
