These Soldiers Never thought Pizzas Would Be Falling From The Sky!

Everyone loves a good pizza.

Retired Master Sgt. Mark Evans was watching the war on TV with his son one day, when his son asked if the troops get pizza where they are stationed. This got the Sergeant thinking. He started to phone in calls seeing if there was a way he could get pizza to the troops on the other side of the world. When he called Major General Kenneth Dowd, head of Joint Central Command Logistics, Evans asked if they could somehow get pizza to the troops. The Major General said, “I can get an F16 engine on the other side of the Earth in 12 hours, I think can get pizzas there”.

For the troops, it was just an emotional experience, as they could feel the love and support from back home.

Since 2008, they have been delivering pizza to the troops every 4th of July.

  1. This is great. Reminds me in Cheech and Chong’s first album, Helicopters were flying overhead with a blaring megaphone. “Men can you use more ammunition.” A stoned out Cheech Marin replied, ” Ah no man, but some peperoni pizzas would be cool.

    Your great read Dr. Lorra is a great example for all of us. If you have an idea, don’t just think about it, MAKE IT Happen. Thanks for this.
