Honolulu Pizza

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s emergency operations center enjoys pizzas sent by the Honolulu Council.

The Atlanta Metropolitan Council is assisting with the acquisition of personal protective equipment (PPE) for the Atlanta Navy Recruiting District headquarters and its 47 offices to help fight COVID-19 and ensure the NRD mission continues during the pandemic.

“Through the council’s proactive coordination with local contacts and suppliers, the Atlanta NRD scored 100 N95 masks, 40 quilted masks, 25 homemade masks, 50 pairs of gloves and homemade hand sanitizer,” said Dale Mastley, president of the Atlanta metro-area council. “We remain steadfast in our support of our active-duty personnel in whatever way we can provide assistance.”

The Honolulu Council, in a move to support the service men and women who are “standing the watch” at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam’s emergency operations center, had pizza delivered to them on April 3. The pies were provided by Papa John’s.

According to the council, after diving into the pies, the Hickam service men and women tweeted, “The team is so thankful and feeling refreshed! You are awesome! Thanks Honolulu Navy League!”
