Armed Forces Bowl


About one quarter of domestic Lockheed Martin employees are military veterans, or are currently serving. 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 2014 was the first year Lockheed Martin was the title sponsor of the Armed Forces Bowl, we have been involved for years with the game and other initiatives that support the armed forces. Our Missiles and Fire Control business became a sponsor of the Armed Forces Bowl event in its early years. Later, our Aeronautics business joined in, expanding our public recognition of the military and veteran community.

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.
