The only way to honor them.
By honoring and recognizing the enormous sacrifices that America’s military personnel have made on the battlefield, the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is much more than a bowl game and that is especially evident with our unique trophy.
Fittingly, the championship trophy is no ordinary trophy. Forged from combat-tested metal and the steel from our hometown namesake battleship, the USS Fort Worth; the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl Trophy stands as a testament to the courage and fortitude of our brothers and sisters in arms. The battlefield is in its DNA and its parts were donated from each branch of our armed forces.
Representing strength, honor, heroism and sacrifice, the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl Trophy is an iconic symbol befitting those who answer the call of duty. We are proud to honor our champion with such a worthy piece of hardware.
