Members of the Illinois National Guard in Washington, D.C., were surprised with dozens of pizzas Sunday night courtesy of Gov. J.B. Pritzker.
On its Facebook page, the Illinois National Guard posted photos of the pizzas being delivered to its members, who are in the nation's capital to assist with security ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Wednesday.
“In the wake of the incident at the Capitol, ensuring a peaceful transfer of power is of the utmost importance,” Pritzker previously said in a social media post. “The Illinois National Guard is renowned for exemplary soldiers and airmen, and I’m proud to have about 200 members represent Illinois during the upcoming presidential inauguration.”
As governor, Pritzker serves as commander-in-chief of the state's armed forces.
