The Marines greatly appreciated all the efforts put forth by the AFSC, MAC, USCBP, TSA, Guest Supply and Pearson’s Candy. There were sighs of relief for the treats in the MN Twins bags, as well as, the Girl Scout Cookies, hot dogs, cup cakes and toiletries. Not to mention, the opportunity to shave and smoke! The best meet-ngreet4compliment we received was from a young Marine who said … “this is a very humbling experience to see that so many Americans care.”meet-ngreet2
