2020 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl to Be Played on New Year’s Eve!

FORT WORTH, Texas – The 18th edition of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl will be played on Thursday, Dec. 31, at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. (CT) on ESPN.

“We are excited to be playing on New Year’s Eve, one of the most traditional college football bowl game dates, and we are looking forward to another outstanding game this year,” said Brant Ringler, executive director of the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl. “While this year has been like no other, we will do everything possible to honor all those in the armed forces who make this game possible.”

The annual game, played in honor of the armed forces of the United States, is the only collegiate football bowl game that has hosted all three military academy football teams. The U.S. Military Academy (2010, 2017, 2018), the U.S. Air Force Academy (2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2015) and the U.S. Naval Academy (2013, 2016) have all participated in the bowl. The game has included an academy team 10 times in the last 13 years.

The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl has featured the “armed forces” theme since 2006. Patriotic overtones recognizing all branches of the service are prevalent throughout the game. Past Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowls have included fan-fest adventure areas showcasing armed forces hardware; flyovers; demonstrations by several of the military's top skydiving teams; custom homes awarded to wounded warriors; on-field induction ceremonies; armed forces bands and honor guards; and the annual Great American Patriot Award presented by Armed Forces Insurance.

This is the fourth time that the game is being played on the last day of the calendar year. The game was also contested on Dec. 31 three straight years from 2007-09, and resulted in the bowl’s second, third and fourth most attended games. Other game dates have been Dec. 23 (2003-06, 2016-17), Dec. 29 (2012, 2015), Dec. 30 (2010-11, 2013), Jan. 2 (2015) and Jan. 4 (2020).

Since 2014, the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is the highest scoring of the more than three dozen bowl games in the nation with a total of 457 points scored. The next highest scoring bowls are the Rose Bowl (449), Miami Beach/Frisco Bowl (428) and Orange Bowl (403). Ten of the 12 teams to play in the Armed Forces Bowl over the last six years have amassed at least 30 points.

Eighty players who have participated in the Armed Forces Bowl since it began in 2003 have been selected in the NFL Draft, including six in 2020. Six former bowl participants were NFL first-round picks, highlighted by California quarterback and 2015 game MVP Jared Goff (No. 1 overall by the Los Angeles Rams in 2016). Other first-rounders include: Kansas defensive back Aqib Talib (2008), Cal center Alex Mack (2009), Cal defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (2010), BYU defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (2013) and San Diego State running back Rashaad Penny (2018).

The bowl game also created and operates the Armed Forces Merit Award presented by the Football Writers Association of America. For additional information about the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl, please visit ArmedForcesBowl.com and follow on Facebook and Twitter.

The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl is one of 17 bowl games owned and operated by ESPN Events, a division of ESPN.

Last Night the Ladies held their Friday Night Steak Benifit raising money for their scholarship fund. They sold out early.

Congratulations, appreciate the effort and awesome job you ALL did.

The Department of Texas will take its lead from AMVETS National and terms of current officers are extended until a national convention may be safely held in 2021. Appointed committee chairpersons for AMVETS will also remain in their positions. Anyone who wishes to not serve another term will need to send in a letter to the Department, or reply to this email, that they do not wish to remain in office another year.

National Moment of Remembrance
Memorial Day 2020

Greetings AMVETS Family:

As we approach this weekend, may we remember the sacrifices of many to ensure our Freedoms, and the safety of our Nation. We are thankful for all that are working hard to get us through this pandemic, but Memorial Day is special in that it shows that we have not forgotten our soldiers who have gone before us, those who never returned home, and reminds us of the scars that some still carry within themselves. Please reach out to each other.

Let us pray - Heavenly Father we thank you that we live in a Country that has freedom of religion. We thank our precious soldiers that gave their lives to ensure that we have these rights. We ask for your blessings on those who never returned home to us, may we find their way home. Bless those who carry the scars of war physically and mentally. Bless the families of the fallen, may your loving spirit ease the pain within their hearts, and keep loving memories in their thoughts. We ask for patience, understanding, and guidance of things we don’t understand, and help us to support those in need. May this day be of togetherness, love for one another, and respect for those who made the ultimate sacrifice. This, in the name of Jesus, AMEN.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

FROM AMVETS LADIES AUXILIARY NATIONAL PRESIDENT DEE BAGGETT

On this Memorial Day weekend, Americans are enjoying the warm weather all over the country, with cookouts, yard work, and all sorts of outdoor opportunities. Whether you are celebrating with friends or family, please take a few minutes to remember all the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our Freedom.

I have seen tons of American Flags and wreaths placed to honor these deceased and a heartfelt thank you to all who helped in these endeavors. These Flags have been placed in National Veteran’s cemeteries and local cemeteries alike.

Arlington National Cemetery is sometimes called America’s “most sacred place”, with the rolling hills dotted by seemingly innumerable graves, the graves hold members of the military who served from the Civil War to the present. Every rank from lowest to highest is represented. Some of those died young, on active duty. Some died old, decades after leaving the military.

The names represent people with origins from all over the planet, reminding us why it is often said that the U.S. military is the world’s most diverse organization. What all these graves have in common, however, is the reason why those buried there were interned. These men and women took an oath to the Constitution and served our c\Country and each other with honor, dignity, and courage and we owe them a great gratitude.

ALWAYS REMEMBER as our nation celebrates Memorial Day on a beautiful weekend, we should take the opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices of the members of our Armed Forces who gave their lives so we can enjoy freedom and prosperity. This is the very least we can do, and it is up to us to now provide that helping hand and warm embrace in return for their sacrifice.

God Bless and have a happy and safe Memorial Day!

Important information for Desert Storm 1990-91 please Share! The GWIRP focuses on funding innovative, competitively peer-reviewed research to (1) provide a better understanding of the pathobiology underlying GWI, (2) identify objective markers (biomarkers) for improved diagnosis, and (3) to develop treatments for the complex of GWI symptoms and their underlying causes. Our Vision is to make a significant impact on GWI and improve the health and lives of affected Veterans and their families Please all get to reading so you understand what is going on....Vision - Improved health and lives of Veterans who have Gulf War Illness The Gulf War Illness Research Program (GWIRP) was initiated in 2006 to provide support for research of exceptional scientific merit to study the health effects of deployment on U.S. Warfighters during the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf War. The GWIRP challenges the scientific community to design high-impact research that will improve the health and lives of Veterans who have Gulf War illness (GWI). GWI is characterized by multiple, diverse symptoms that typically include chronic headache, widespread pain, cognitive difficulties, debilitating fatigue, gastrointestinal problems, respiratory symptoms, sleep problems, and other abnormalities that could not be explained by established medical diagnoses or standard laboratory tests. The population of Veterans affected by GWI is a subset of the nearly 700,000 U.S. Warfighters who served during the 1990-1991 Gulf War. Studies indicate that approximately 25-32% of Gulf War Veterans continue to experience symptoms associated with their deployment. The GWIRP focuses on funding innovative, competitively peer-reviewed research to (1) provide a better understanding of the pathobiology underlying GWI, (2) identify objective markers (biomarkers) for improved diagnosis, and (3) to develop treatments for the complex of GWI symptoms and their underlying causes. Our Vision is to make a significant impact on GWI and improve the health and lives of affected Veterans and their families https://cdmrp.army.mil/funding/pa/FY19-GWIRP-RAA.pdf…https://cdmrp.army.mil/gwirp/pdfs/GWIRP_Landscape.pdfhttps://cdmrp.army.mil/gw…/pdfs/GWIRP%20Strategic%20Plan.pdfhttps://cdmrp.army.mil/gwirp/pbks/gwirppbk2018.pdf *********************** Priority URGENT please all of you Desert Storm veterans this is urgent....please call and go thru phone screening to get in the study!
