Thin Mints, Tagalongs, Samoas – they'll bring a taste of home to troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Thanks to the Patriots’ Trail Council Girl Scout Troops 3789 and 2995, troops deployed out of Hanscom Air Force Base will soon receive more than 625 boxes of the famous cookies.

Friends, family and area residents bought and donated the cookies the Hopkinton girls are sending to the troops, according to a press release from the Girl Scouts. This is the second year that Troop 3789 has collected cookies for Hanscom personnel and the plan is for more Hopkinton scout troops to participate next year, according to the release.
