Mark Evans of Pizzas4patriots.com joined Jeff Thurn on Thursday’s edition of Overtime.

Evans on what he is accomplishing with Pizzas 4 Patriots:

“I served 26 years in the military of regular and reserve Air Force. I want to pay back to the guys and they are out there in the Middle East and one day, my son and I were together eating pizza and the war was on the TV and said, ‘Hey, could we get them pizza?’ I’m like, yeah, we could do that. I was a Master Sergeant and was suppose to be able to do anything. I emailed General Petraeus. My wife says no way. I said there’s a bet going on now, honey. What do you mean I can’t send pizzas to the guys? General Petraeus said yes within 24 hours and we shipped 2,000 pizzas.”

 

From there, Evans has shipped 150,000 pizzas, which is more than a million slices.
