TAHLEQUAH, Oklahoma -

U.S. Marine Corps veteran Dustin Butler, of Tahlequah is one of ten veterans, nationwide, receiving an all-expense paid trip to this weekend's Super Bowl in Phoenix.

Butler, a Cherokee Nation citizen, enlisted in the U.S. Marines Corps back in 1999 and served two tours in Iraq.

He was honorably discharged in 2005 where he then served in the Air Force Reserves until 2013.

Operation Enduring Respect is not only sending Butler to watch the Seahawks and Patriots duke it out, but to the NFL Hall of Fame luncheon as well.

"We get to meet all the Hall of Famers, we'll get, we'll get our football that's going to be autographed,” Butler said. “I'm really, really, excited about that as much as the Super Bowl."

Operation Enduring Respect has provided more than 1,000 tickets to five Super Bowls for our military men and women.
