The West Central Tribune has posted a video about Operation Chocolate Chip Cookies in memory of New London's soldier Ryane Clark.

Clark was killed Oct. 4 in Afghanstan and was buried Oct. 17.

Members of the community baked Chocolate Chip cookies, Clark's favorite, for his funeral. The response provide so many cookies that the extra were boxed up and shipped to Afghanistan for U.S. soldiers serving there.
