FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas -- Cole Service Unit Girl Scouts served Soldiers living in Benner Barracks a Thanksgiving Day dinner.

The 71 Girl Scouts either prepared part of the meal or helped serve during the meal held in the barracks day room. The Cole Service Unit includes six Girl Scout Troops ranging from kindergarten Daisies to middle school Cadets.

The dinner included five turkeys, assorted vegetable side dishes and dinner roles as well as cakes, pies and cookies.

"I don't think anybody left hungry and the Soldiers saved leftovers for folks doing shift work," said Sgt. 1st Class Roberta Hutson, Cole Girl Scout Service Unit director. Hutson is assigned to the 7304 Medical Training Support Battalion.

Jose Garcia, Benner Barracks facilities manager made sure the kitchen was ready for the Thanksgiving dinner food preparation and assistant manager, Jan Aldrich, brought desserts.
