The Bowl for the Brave

Approximately 25% of Lockheed Martin’s U.S. employee population are active duty military or veterans. We understand the significant contributions and sacrifices our armed forces personnel make to ensure global and national security. Sponsoring the Armed Forces Bowl is an important way that Lockheed Martin celebrates patriotism and recognizes the efforts of servicemen and women from all five branches of the military.

While most other bowl games are focused primarily on the game itself and the schools competing, the Armed Forces Bowl is committed to honoring and recognizing active-duty service members, wounded warriors, veterans and their families. Throughout the game, the Great American Patriot Award will be given, wounded warriors will be honored, and donations to military charities will be presented. The game is also broadcast through the Armed Forces Network to ensure that all service members can watch – no matter where they are stationed around the world.
