Fast Food Chain Answers Soldier's Plea

The food in Iraq became so unappetizing that one soldier went to Chick-Fil-A...

It turns out when you are stationed in Iraq the "food can become unappetizing very quickly."

That's the conclusion that US Army First Lieutenant Jessie Guajardo came to after he had enough of the bland chicken he was eating.

All he and his fellow soldiers wanted was some sauce from their favourite fast food restaurant. 

So, Jessie took "a shot in the dark" and messaged US chain Chick-Fil-A, whose nearest restaurant was over a thousand miles away.

"Ordering bottles of sauce is mostly out of the question because of refrigeration after opening, etc.... It was then that we thought of Chick-Fil-A individually packaged sauces."

Chick-Fil-A Sauces

To his surprise, two weeks later, on bland chicken day and Jessie had some mail.

Two massive cases filled full of Chick-Fil-A's famously tasty sauces had arrived on base.

"After I brought the cases into a common area, everyone was ecstatic to see the appetizing sauces."

 After receiving the gift and spicing up his usual bland chicken with a few of the sauces Jessie took to social media once more to show his gratitude:

"I can't thank Chick-Fil-A enough for this seemingly small gesture that single handedly picked up the spirits of so many people. Thank you Chick-Fil-A!"
