DENVER – Two brothers who worked to honor the lives of servicemembers who died in the Vietnam War will attend Super Bowl LIII this Sunday in Atlanta.

Broncos Quarterback Case Keenum tweeted that Jim Reece and his brother Tom will get tickets to Sunday’s matchup between the Rams and the Patriots.

Jim served for almost 40 years in both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force. Jim was not deployed to Vietnam, but some of his high school classmates were killed during the war. This experience prompted Jim and Tom to help find a service photo for every servicemember who died while serving in Vietnam to honor their memory.

Keenum, USAA and Together We Served surprised the brothers with the tickets. Jim will be traveling all the way from Wenatchee, Wa.  and Tom will travel from his home in North Carolina to watch the big game.

Keenum will meet the brothers the day before Super Bowl Sunday.
