Although the Dallas Cowboys won't be at Super Bowl LVI, that didn't stop linebacker Micah Parsons from sending a well-deserving fan. Chief Master Sergeant Frederick Bates served in the U.S. Air Force for over 32 years.

On Thursday, the rookie posted that he's honoring the veteran by gifting him two tickets to the big game. According to WCTV, the non-commissioned officer will meet #11 at USAA's Salute to Service Lounge.

Bates currently lives in Georgia. NBCDFW caught up with him to discuss the experience. Bates said, "Making it to the top of the Air Force in enlisted rank was previously my biggest accomplishment, but now this is going to be one of my bucket list items that I can take off right now."
