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.
CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reports.
For many, it wouldn’t be Super Bowl Sunday without pizza.
For retired Air Force Master Sgt. Mark Evans, it wouldn’t be Super Bowl Sunday without getting pizza to troops overseas.
“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.
