DynCorp International personnel working in support of the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) recently supported Girl Scouts of America’s “Project Troop to Troops,” helping send Girl Scout cookies to U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan.
“Project Troop to Troops is a great initiative that gives our soldiers a little taste of home. We were proud to participate in this program that benefitted our military personnel overseas as well the DI field team working in support of U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives in the LOGCAP program,” said Susan Kyzer, senior operations supervisor, LOGCAP, at DynCorp International.
350 boxes of cookies were purchased in support of the program.
Project Troop to Troops
Through the Project Troop to Troops 2012 initiative, more than 9,200 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies were sent to military personnel all over the world.
The “Troop to Troops” (T2T) program provides the opportunity to send the well-known cookies to servicemen and women through a partnership with Operation Troop Aid, a non-profit organization that provides care packages for U.S. Service members.
Supporting the Community
All Girl Scout cookie purchases were made through Shelby Lambert, daughter of DI program financial analyst, Bobbie Lambert, whose goal was to sell more than 2,000 boxes in support of the T2T program. With assistance from DI LOGCAP program management office in Fort Worth, Texas, Lambert not only exceeded her goal, but her Girl Scout troop was also able to send hundreds of boxes of cookies to military personnel overseas.
