"We want all service men and women and their families to come in and let us take care of them. They do so much to take care of us. This is a small token of our appreciation for all they do and have done," says Louie Psallidas, chief executive officer of UNO. "We are proud of our strong history of military support, whether it's sending pizzas to the troops overseas, donating pizzas to local VA hospitals or helping to raise funds for organizations that support our men and women in uniform and their families, and we are honored to be able to partner with the wonderful people at Fisher House Foundation this Veteran's Day."
