Veteran Deploys Pizzas To U.S. Troops Overseas On Super Bowl Sunday

CHICAGO (CBS) — The mission is called Operation Pizza Bowl.

It’s the latest effort by a local charity to cheer up troops in Afghanistan on Super Bowl Sunday.

“They’re in a combat zone, and you know what: They’re thinking of home,” Evans says. “My goal now is to put a smile on everybody’s face.”

He is the force behind the non-profit Pizzas4Patriots, now in its 9th year.
