2023 Armed Forces BowlDecember 23, 2023

The Armed Forces Bowl is a postseason college football bowl game that has become a staple of Fort Worth. Owned and operated by ESPN, the annual event honors the service and sacrifice made by America’s military personnel and their families recognizing all six branches of the armed forces throughout the festivities. This year, the event will again bestow The Great American Patriot Award and The Armed Forces Merit Award. Past recipients of the Great American Patriot Award include Chris Kyle, General Mark Welsh, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force. General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff U.S. Marine Corps among others. 

The Trophy: This event is unlike any other so it would make sense that the trophy is also one-of-a-kind. The unique trophy is forged of metal and steel taken from combat from all five branches of the military. It stands a reminder to all of the courage, honor, strength, and sacrifice made by those who answer the call of duty.

Date and Time: Kickoff is December 23, 2023 at 2:30p.m. (CT)
