Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry surprised a United States Marine Corps veteran with tickets to the Super Bowl Thursday morning.
Landry teamed up with USAA to award Corporal George Reilly with two tickets to Super Bowl LIV in Miami, Florida.
Reilly enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1960 when he was 18-years-old, serving in the Vietnam War as a Radio Operator and Loadmaster. After his service, Reilly joined the New York Police Department, retiring as a detective years later.
Honored and humbled to be able to provide a pair of tix to #SBLIV to Marine Corps vet George Reilly from @USAA & @TWSMilitary. Service runs deep in the Reilly family and I can’t say thank you enough. Enjoy the game! pic.twitter.com/hnxGNpz7ju— Jarvis Juice Landry (@God_Son80) January 23, 2020
Landry will meet with Reilly and other veterans during Super Bowl weekend in Miami.
Reilly said he plans to take his son, Sergeant George Reilly Jr., a USMC veteran with eight years of service, with him to the Super Bowl.
“With the help of USAA and Together We Served, it’s an honor to award a trip to the Super Bowl to Corporal Reilly and his son, Sergeant Reilly,” Landry said. “As a country, we are grateful to military veterans like the Reillys, who I am very much looking forward to meeting in Miami at the Super Bowl.”
