This article relates the story of Girl Scouts in Larchmont, New York who delivered thank-you bags to veterans in their community on Veterans Day. They decorated bags with crayons and stickers, then filled them with handmade magnets, candy and thank-you notes. They also added a flyer from the Larchmont Public Library about its Veterans' History Project. The girls learned about veterans and their service, and the veterans found they mattered to a young generation.
