Vice President Mike Pence escorted two wounded soldiers to Super Bowl LI in Houston on Sunday.

 

Marine Staff Sgt. Anthony Mannino, Jr., wounded in Iraq in 2008, and Army Staff Sgt. Frederick Manning, injured in Afghanistan last year, flew on Air Force Two with Pence and his wife, Karen, The Hill reports. 

"We've got Falcons fans. We've got Patriot fans," Pence said according to the pool report at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

"There'll be a winner on this plane on the way back."

Mannino, a New England Patriots fan, invited his wife Diane and Manning, an Atlanta Falcons fan, brought his nurse from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Army Sgt. First Class Charles Stanley.

Pence told the servicemen that the VIP trip was a "small token of the gratitude of the people of this country.”"

"We're honored you're with us," he said.
