After making Warrior Wishes come true in Denver for Army SGT Nicholas Dighans at the AFC championship game, my dad made his way back to the Denver airport for the 2nd night in a row.

As soon as his flight landed in Dallas he jumped on a bus to Arlington to meet up with a few Warriors at AT&T stadium for a VIP tour of “Jerry’s house”.

Army Warrior Marchus Burleson & his father along with Marine Jared Deruby joined my dad touring the most amazing stadium in the world. From the press box, to the luxury suites to the locker room & the field, it was incredible!

The best part of the tour is the last stop where everyone got to take a picture on the Star at the 50 yard line!

Once the tour wrapped up, everyone made their way downtown Dallas to eat & meet up with the rest of the warriors.  Joining the group was Marines Chris Rowe & Julio Marin, Army Warriors, Amber & Mike Wells, Navy Warrior Jeremy McConnell & Air Force Warrior JR Boddy.  We would like to thank the worlds largest Hooters restaurantfor filling everyone up on wings & giving us a place to get to know each other before the game.

Amber Wells & The Dallas Stars went above & beyond to help us make Warrior Wishes come true in a “suite” way!  Amber helped us organize this event & the Stars provided a luxurious suite for the Warriors to watch the game in.

We would like to thank the Dallas Stars & Amber Wells for the opportunity to Make these warrior wishes come true!  We also would like to thank AT&T stadium & the Cowboys for providing the VIP tour & Hooters for providing lunch!  

TOGETHER WE MAKE WARRIOR WISHES COME TRUE!  

After the game, my dad thanked the Warriors one last time for their service & sacrifices before making his way back to the airport for his 3rd straight night. Luckily he found a comfortable chair to sleep on & woke up in time to catch his 5am flight back home.

We will be spending all week to plan for Super Bowl events.  If you or anyone you know has tickets to the big game that would be willing to sell them at face value or donate them, please let us know ASAP so we can make more warrior wishes come true at the big game!
