Indian Army soldiers posted at Siachen glacier in Jammu and Kashmir got a surprise this Republic Day as a fast food chain delivered hot pizzas to them as an acknowledgement of their efforts and sacrifices in protecting the nation.
The fast food chain, Domino’s Pizza, delivered 4,000 pizzas to the soldiers deployed on the forward posts at about 20,000 feet above sea level, said a press release by Jubilant Foodworks, which holds the franchise of Domino’s Pizza in India.
“We are honoured to have served hot Domino’s pizzas to our brave soldiers and officers at Siachen as a gesture of our gratitude for their untiring service to the nation,” Domino’s wrote on its Twitter handle.
The aim of the initiative was to offer a few moments of joy to the soldiers while they are away from their families serving the nation, the statement added.
