Pizza For The Troops Finally Makes It In The Record Books
In honor of Memorial Day, we decided to talk pizza! who doesn’t like pizza! Our troops in the field do! A massive delivery of 30,000 pizzas to military personnel serving in Afghanistan, made last summer, has officially been named by Guinness World Records the world’s largest pizza delivery ever.
The delivery was orchestrated by Pizza 4 Patriots, a nonprofit group founded by retired Air Force master sergeant Mark Evans, to U.S. service members in Kandahar, Bagram and Camp Bastion.
According to ABC, All deliveries, including the Guinness record, were made with help from private carrier DHL Express, which donates its services. Many of the pizzas are actually air-dropped to troops in the field.
Most recently, Evans helped facilitate the delivery of 21,000 — 1,000 pizzas more than Pizza 4 Patriot’s goal of 20,000 — for Super Bowl 2013.
