Troops to Get Special Pizza Delivery

10 thousand Chicago Style pizzas are headed to soldiers overseas in time for the Super Bowl.

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn, DHL Express and the Pizzas for Patriots Program have teamed up to send the ready to bake pizzas to troops in Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Oman.

Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs Director Erica Borggren, who served in Iraq, says having a piece of home is always a treat for soldiers.

Since 2008, Pizzas for Patriots has sent more than 132 thousand pizzas to soldiers overseas.
