Operation Popcorn

If you are like Cedar Posts the last thing you need sitting around the house is a gallon sized tub of Carmel popcorn.

Yet when the Cub Scouts come calling you are more than willing to hand over a few dollars to help the newly minted junior salesman at your front door make his goal of selling a ton of carb and calorie rich gourmet popped kernels.

You also know there are thousands of men and women over in Afghanistan and other overseas bases who get more than enough exercise chasing down Taliban bad guys and would appreciate the taste of home while stationed at some end of the earth Marine Corps outpost like "FOB Delaram" in the Nimruz Province of Afghanistan.

Cedar Posts has found the perfect answer:

You can help the Cub Scouts and feed the troops half a world away by clicking on this link OPERATION POPCORN and and clicking on the Military Donation tab.

This $35 purchase ships assorted popcorn products to the men and women of the U.S. Military on behalf of the Boy Scouts of America.

More than 2,500 cases of popcorn were shipped to Flint as part of Operation Popcorn. Operation Popcorn is a gift donation by the Boy Scouts of America and the Weaver Popcorn Company of Indiana.

Thanks to people like you who purchase this item, Trail's End Popcorn Company and the Boy Scouts were able to ship $11 million dollars worth of popcorn to US Troops last year.

By clicking HERE, and placing an order the Boy Scouts should be able to exceed that number for the 2011 Operation Popcorn.

Thank you for Supporting our Troops and The Boy Scouts of America.

What a cute kid. I didn't know the Neal's had a grandson or that Whit and Dianne had both retired.

Well congratulations on all the above.
