Long Distance Pizza

A deployed United States soldier made sure that her standing pizza date with her husband was honored even though she couldn’t be there in person.

Her husband used Reddit to share a picture showing how is wife keeping their pizza date alive.

“My wife is deployed right now, and we always used to get pizza on Wednesday nights. I sent her a message telling her how much I missed doing that with her, then Papa Johns showed up,” he said.

A message inside the pizza box was very simple but heartfelt: “I love you. I miss you. And I will be home soon.”

The husband, an active soldier himself, explained that his wife had been deployed for a few months and should be home towards the end of 2014. In the meantime, according to his Reddit account, he seems prepared to enjoy the pizza and honor their date while waiting for her return.
