FLOWERY BRANCH — Two military servicemen who were wounded in combat will be honored at the Atlanta Falcons' next football game.

Team officials said Marine Cpl. Todd Love and Army SFC Michael Schlitz will be honored at the Atlanta Falcons "Salute to Service" game on Sunday. Both men have ties to Georgia.

Falcons officials say they've partnered with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the Gary Sinise Foundation to raise awareness and money to honor both men. The men were scheduled to visit with team members during Friday's Falcons practice.

The two foundations are partnering to build homes for Love, Schlitz and other injured veterans nationwide.

Sinise played an amputee in the 1994 film Forrest Gump and stars in TV's CSI: New York.

The Falcons host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
