In the government and defense division and and it rolled to me it's three years ago.
Were the international specialist in and you know dealing with the -- -- business side of the house we do it.
But -- going into the conflict zones -- more challenging places needless to say it was frozen pizzas than have to because once they get their reaction and -- 140 degree weather.
It's quite a bit more challenging but I am an air force veteran myself and and value opportunity -- to support the troops was was something -- we.
And in -- the notion is that on the fourth of July.
Every -- know where -- -- gone we're sending 6000.
To where to.
All the furthest operating bases they're called Bob's hand and then out from there to the camps the effort -- -- General Petraeus said the -- the furthest out is the pizza and they can pretty much -- it on the hood of the truck because it's hard baked.

The DMZ of Korea shipped to and also in the Philippines.
And -- we're so fortunate I am with -- strike because people are offering like come pizza companies of things to be part of it so dominoes called me and they said hey can we help you in Asia.
Which then -- -- stores are sort of going into the DMZ for us.
And so that gives us more time and money.
