CLEVELAND, Ohio (Tribune News Service) — Jarvis Landry is teaming up with USAA and Together We Served to provide a Super Bowl trip for Vietnam War veteran George Reilly and a guest as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service program.

Reilly, a corporal in the U.S. Marines from 1960-64, was deployed to Danang, Vietnam in 1963 and served with a variety of helicopter squadrons. He later joined the NYPD and retired as a detective.


Landry is scheduled to meet with Reilly, a Giants fan, at the USSA’s Salute to Service Lounge during Super Bowl weekend in Miami. Reilly’s son, George Reilly Jr., a sergeant in the Marines, is also expected to attend.

“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 Reilly’s, who I am very much looking forward to meeting in Miami at the Super Bowl.”
