Home / National News / Deployed Soldier Sends Pizza Home to Husband


(NEW YORK) — Even when separated by thousands of miles, one deployed U.S. soldier managed to keep the tradition of a weekly pizza night with her husband alive.

The soldier’s husband, Reddit user Robswampthing, posted photographic evidence of his wife’s love on the social media site this week.

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

The message from his wife above the hot and cheesy Papa John’s pizza was sweet and simple.

“I love you. I miss you. And I will be home soon,” it read.

The Reddit user, who did not reply to ABC News’ requests for comment, went on to explain that his wife had been deployed for “a few months” and would be back home towards the end of 2014.

“Here’s to eating this by myself :/,” wrote Robswampthing, noting that he is also an active duty soldier.

“We both absolutely love it, granted this is the longest we’ve been separated [sic],” he wrote.
