Super Bowl Pizzas Give US Troops a Taste of Home

Civics and World - General

Soldier enjoys Pizzas4Patriots photo10,000 Uno’s pizzas will be delivered to U.S. troops overseas in time for Super Bowl Sunday, thanks to the Evans family of Illinois who started Pizzas4Patriots in 2008.

Supporters of the operation want to send soldiers a taste of home, including the shipping company DHL Express, which delivers the pizzas for no charge.

The pizzas arrive power-baked and cryo-frozen, said Mark Evans, a retired master sergeant who served in the Air Force for 26 years. They just need to be heated when they arrive for the troops.

They also deliver pizzas every year for the Fourth of July holiday.

After being in several very depressing conversations with seemingly EVERYONE about the high price of gas, the state of the economy and upcoming presidential election, I don't think I've even smiled in a few days - until I found your site... You've gently reminded me that there is a lot in the world to smile about. Perspective is everything, and despite what appears in mainstream news, good does happen - a lot more than I was lead to believe. - Stacey Long, Hayward, CA
