"we are stationed here unaccompanied...without our families"

Thank you to all the Girl Scouts who participated in “Hearts Across the Miles” again this year. The program sends Girl Scout Cookies to deployed service members. We received the following note from one of the soldiers who received the care packages,

The Girl Scouts of Colorado-

We received three VERY large packages in the mail today filled with boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and other items. THANK YOU! Your generosity is very much appreciated. We are an Army Veterinary Detachment stationed at Naval Support Activity Bahrain, consisting of 3 officers and 6 enlisted soldiers.

We are responsible for food safety and defense of DoD activities in Bahrain, UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia and parts of Kuwait. We also provide routine and emergency medical care to Military Working Dogs in Bahrain, UAE, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Although we are not truly forward deployed, we are stationed here unaccompanied without our families. Your generous gifts were shared with our fellow Airmen and Sailors in Bahrain, UAE, and Oman. I personally appreciate your efforts as my daughter is a Girl Scout in Fairbanks, Alaska. We will be mailing out a thank you to the Girl Scouts of Colorado. The kids pictures and letters are hanging up for the public to see in our Veterinary Clinic here in Bahrain.

Again, thank you.

Sincerely- CPT(P) Kubat
