Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan will taste a slice of home on July 4th after the delivery of 28,000 pizzas from UNO Chicago Grill.
The pies were shipped from JFK Airport in special containers to arrive fresh on battlefield thanks to the nonprofit organization Pizzas 4 Patriots, founded bytretired Master Sgt. Mark Evans.
Evans calls it a world record pizza party, which will serve almost 90,000 soldiers. DHL Express is delivering the entire load in a 747 aircraft for free — including 30,000 cases of beer.
AT&T joined the party sending along free calling cards so the troops can call home.
