FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — A Fort Bragg soldier is getting the trip of a lifetime thanks to the generosity of future Hall of Famer JJ Watt.
Watt, who recently announced his retirement from the NFL, tweeted a picture of Sgt. Jackson Bond announcing that he’d be attending the Super Bowl this year.
Watt teamed up with USAA and the 82nd Airborne Division Association to pick a soldier to get tickets to Super Bowl LVII, which will happen February 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
Bond graduated from Cal State in 2019. He enlisted in the Army as an infantryman in 2020. He plans to take his brother with him to the big game — both are lifelong Dallas Cowboy fans, so they’re hoping the Cowboys can do something they haven’t done since 1996.
