From a Defense Logistics Agency News Release
FORT BELVOIR, Va., Jan. 31, 2013 As soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines in Afghanistan sit down to watch the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl, they'll enjoy a variety of American-style appetizers and finger foods, thanks to Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support.
Subsistence personnel ensured delivery of about 49,000 pounds of chicken wings, 46,000 pounds of frozen pizza, 11,000 pounds of mozzarella sticks and 2,200 gallons of chili to warfighters in Afghanistan.
Additional fare includes jalapeno poppers, chicken mini bites, turkey wings, french fries, onion rings and meatballs. DLA Troop Support also will provide more than 9,800 cases of nonalcoholic beer to wash it all down.
"DLA plans well in advance to provide these favorite and tasty finger foods for the Super Bowl, ensuring that more than 200 locations throughout Afghanistan are adequately stocked on time for February," said Anthony Amendolia, Europe and Middle East region chief for subsistence customer operations.
