SAN DIEGO – Petty Officer 2nd Class Steven Conrad, a flight mechanic stationed at Coast Guard Sector San Diego, hurries out from under an MH-60J Jayhawk helicopter after attaching a pallet of Girl Scout cookies May 2, 2009. In a campaign called Operation Thin Mint, organized by San Diego area Girls Scouts, more than 184,000 boxes of cookies were donated to the troops. The Coast Guard airlifted a pallet of cookies as a symbolic send off of the cookies during a celebration aboard the USS Midway Museum attended by more than 1,700 Girl Scouts.
