Girl Scouts Attend World War II’s Unsung Heroines Program
This weekend, members of Girl Scout troop 259 attended the Maryland Women Heritage Center‘s World War II’s Unsung Heroines Program. The event gathered female WWII veterans and women of that era to be recognized and honored for their contributions to the war effort abroad and at home.
The Girl Scouts served as color guard, led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance and met several servicewomen members, including a woman pilot. The girls told the group about their activities in Girl Scouting and their work to support the Cookies from the Heart program, which donates boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to military personnel, military families, veterans and other public servants as a gesture of thanks.
