First Command Renew Sponsorship of Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl

December 23, 2011

First Command Financial Services have continued their sponsorship of Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl for the sixth consecutive year.

Kicking off at 11 a.m. CST on Dec. 30 at SMU’s Ford Stadium in Dallas, Texas, the Armed Forces Bowl will feature Brigham Young University and University of Tulsa. The game will air on ESPN TV and ESPN Radio as well as the American Forces Network to U.S. servicemembers around the world.

The game and associated events will involve all five branches of the military, and will feature a showcase of military hardware and presentations by military personnel, a flyover and demonstration by an elite military skydiving team, the presentation of the “Great American Patriot Award” with on-field induction ceremonies at halftime, and more.

Through underwriting in part by First Command, all active-duty servicemembers are eligible for free admission, and a portion of local ticket sales will be donated to military charities.

This follows yesterdays announcement of a partnership between Teletouch and the Bowl.
