2012 Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl tickets officially on sale

Tickets for the 10th anniversary Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl are now officially on sale to the public. Following the bowl’s sponsor and ticket renewals, the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl launched its “Purple Heart Campaign”, offering TCU season ticket holders the opportunity to purchase their seats for the bowl, with a portion of proceeds going to the TCU ROTC programs. Now that the program has been completed successfully, the bowl is opening up its ticket sales to the public.

Those Like Him

Leon Bohls rarely talked about the war, and he wasn’t even in harm’s way for the most part. Many of those who have served our country kept their emotions, their doubts, their fears to themselves long after their time in the military, and my father was like that. Some suffered in silence, and some have had trouble dealing with what they saw or what they had to do to survive. But all understood the sacrifice that was necessary in time of war, the ultimate sacrifice in far too many cases. My father hadn’t been on the front line, and he didn’t fly bomber missions. But he worked on many of those planes that did in World War II and lost friends in that conflict during his time on with the Army’s 99th Bomber Group on bases in North Africa and Italy. So it’s with special pleasure that I was privileged to serve on a panel that has selected the recipients for the inaugural Armed Forces Merit Award presented by the Football Writers Association of America for their devotion to country.

The Purple Heart Campaign is an exclusive, one-time offer for 2012 TCU season ticket and suite holders, in which Horned Frog football fans are able to purchase their same TCU season tickets for the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl. A portion of proceeds from each Purple Heart Campaign ticket purchased will be donated to the TCU ROTC programs.
