VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The Airmen of Vandenberg were once again gifted cookies from the Lompoc and surrounding areas Albertsons in what is dubbed the second annual Operation Cookie Wagon.

Albertsons donated 1,900 dozen cookies to the Child Development Center, Crestview Elementary, Vandenberg Middle School and the 381st Training Group non-prior service Airmen, delivered Feb. 7, in honor of Valentine's Day.

"Vandenberg and its members are part of the local community," explained Jasper Cardinale, Albertsons Lompoc store director. "When we support our community we get tenfold back."

Senior Airman Shea Harris, 381st Training Support Squadron, and Senior Airman Mario Mitchell, 9th Space Operations Squadron, spearheaded the OCW for the second year in a row to remind the members on base that the community cares.

"It's important because it enables people to see that the community cares for all the hard work and sacrifices military members make every day," said Harris. "Albertsons really believes in giving back, remaining connected and showing appreciation for their community and we look forward to keeping this event going for many years to come."
