On Veterans Day weekend, Ford Military Ambassador Col. Vanessa Benson and football legend Rocky Bleier were proud to honor retired U.S. Marine Brandon Rumbaugh with tickets to the Pittsburgh Steelers game.

Brandon served in Afghanistan and lost both of his legs after stepping on an IED in 2012. He underwent months of rehab and treatments, and now shares his story to challenge and inspire others as a motivational speaker.

Col. Benson and Rocky traveled to surprise Brandon at his home and presented him with the tickets and additional swag in a Ford F-150 vehicle wrapped in camo. This moment was aired on the Fox 11/10 pregame show to honor Brandon for his courage and sacrifice.

Ford is grateful to Brandon and all the other heroes who have given so much for our country.
