It’s far from a pizza celebration, however the National Guard troops stationed in the country’s capital to keep the peace ahead of Inauguration Day are being dealt with to pizza on the reg … thanks to thoughtful donors.
A cargo van packed with stacks of pies was delivered to troops throughout D.C. Friday, from the popular regional dining establishment We, The Pizza.
The pizza joint informs TMZ … it released an effort Tuesday for individuals to contribute cash to supply food for the National Guard, D.C. and Capitol Police and the fire department.
We’re informed on Thursday this resulted in about 1,500 pizzas being delivered, and the number’s at 500 and counting Friday. We, The Pizza states it intends on maintaining the pizza drive through the inauguration.
Members of Congress — such as Reps. Michael Waltz and Vicky Hartzler — have actually been personally included in distributing the pies in the Capitol Building today … to reveal their assistance for safeguarding them.
As we have actually reported … members of the National Guard have actually been called in to increase security in wake of the January 6 Capitol riots, which 20,000 anticipated to be in D.C. for Joe Biden’s inauguration.
It’s been no easy job, as evidenced by tired troops sleeping on the tough Capitol flooring. Obviously, they are worthy of a lot more than pizza … however it’s a great start.
