CAMP TAJI, Iraq — A group of soldiers stationed in Iraq enjoyed a taste of home Jan. 18 courtesy of Michigan-based Little Caesars.
The soldiers, part of Company B, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, dined on Little Caesars pizza shipped to them from Detroit.
The feast resulted from a collaboration between the Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraising Program and L.S.S. Consulting, a global security consulting firm, in which both parents of a Co. B Soldier are executives. DHL shipping also worked with the unit's Family Readiness Group at Fort Hood, Texas, to deliver the pizzas to the soldiers.
"This means a lot, and even though the guys can buy pizzas here, this is more heartfelt as it's chow from home," said 1st Sgt. Damon Perez, Co. B first sergeant. "This really motivates the soldiers to see that people in the States really do care and support us."
The pizzas were cooked in a mobile field kitchen and took about 20 minutes each to bake.
