CHICAGO, Ill. (CBS/WBBM) -- Tens of thousands of pizzas are on their way to U.S. troops in the Middle East.
Volunteers in Chicago loaded up trucks Friday morning. The precious cargo was pizzas from a number of restaurants in the area.
The group Pizza 4 Patriots was formed by Mark Evans and his son at the family dinner table four years ago while they were discussing the war.
Their efforts have led to annual shipments of pizzas in time for soldiers to enjoy them on the Fourth of July.
This year, they collected enough pizza to feed 90,000 troops.
