The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl
The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl celebrated the 11th anniversary of its postseason college football bowl game on December 30, 2013. This year's edition will be played at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas.
Owned and operated by ESPN Events, the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl has featured the “armed forces” theme since 2006. Patriotic overtones recognizing all five branches of the service are prevalent throughout the game. Past Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowls have included fan-fest areas showcasing armed forces hardware; flyovers; demonstrations by several of the military's top skydiving teams; the awarding of custom homes to wounded warriors; on-field induction ceremonies; armed forces bands and honor guards and the awarding of the annual "Great American Patriot Award" (GAPA) presented by Armed Forces Insurance.
Lockheed Martin joined the bowl on February 5, 2014 as the title sponsor of the postseason college football game formerly known as the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl (2006 - 2013).
