Rob Gronkowski gives away Super Bowl tickets to USMC veteran

Rob Gronkowski had a big year with USAA- jumping out of airplanes on Veterans Day and into crowds at Army/Navy. But nothing compares to this epic Super Bowl giveaway.

USAA spokesperson extraordinaire and NFL great Rob Gronkowski has had an impressive year. He dove out of an airplane at the Air Force Academy; he dove into the crowds at the Army/Navy game after giving away two cars to military families in need. And now, he’s giving away two tickets to this year’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas, NV.

The deserving veteran? Graham Dorsey. Dorsey served in the United States Marine Corps as a rifleman with the 5th Marines Regiment for four years (2002 -2006), achieving the rank of Lance Corporal.  After completing boot camp at Camp Pendleton, Graham attended the School of Infantry and Martial Arts training before tours of duty in Iraq, including time in Fallujah. His decorated service history includes being awarded the Combat Action Ribbon, Iraq Campaign Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon with 1-star, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, National Defense Service Medal, and the Navy Presidential Unit Citation. While he is unable to work due to injuries sustained during his military service, he is passionate about finding alternative ways to give back to his country and the brothers and sisters he served alongside, and he does so with Wounded Warrior Project. 

Graham is a lifelong NFL fan, with his favorite team being the Philadelphia Eagles. He now lives in the Phoenix area with his wife, Rebecca, a Wounded Warrior Project registered family support member and Cardinals fan, who will be joining him on the trip to the Super Bowl. Graham and his wife will have an opportunity to spend time with Rob Gronkowski during Super Bowl weekend.
