Andrew Weinstock started collecting candy for Operation Gratitude in 2009. In 2011, more than 2½ tons of candy passed through the 16-year-old's living room on its way to Afghanistan, where American troops use it as a community relations tool with local kids. “I think it is important to let our soldiers serving overseas know that we are thinking of them and that we appreciate the sacrifices they make every day to defend our country,” Andrew says.
