Once again, Long® Fence is honored to support our troops as a sponsor of the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman. The 2012 Military Bowl will be held in Washington DC’s historic RFK Stadium on December 27, 2012 with kickoff scheduled for 3:00 pm. The Bowling Green Falcons (8-4) will take on the San Jose State Spartans (10-2). The game will be televised on ESPN.
Long® Fence will provide the temporary fencing to enclose the Military Village, located between the DC Armory and RFK Stadium. This event showcases military assets that are used worldwide to secure our safety. Scheduled to appear included DRASH tents with a Navy Centenial Museum, Northrop Grumman Night Hawk helicopter, Navy Huey helicopter, Coast Guard helicopter, military tank, humvees, drones, predators and satellite equipment. Demonstrations by military personnel and a special USO area will also be featured. Admission to Military Village is free.
Now in its fifth year, the Military Bowl seeks to generate broad support for the USO and bring the excitement of post-season college football to the Washington DC area. Funds raised from the bowl help thousands of military personnel and their families through the game’s partnership with the USO. Like last year, the Military Bowl will donate $100,000 to the USO and provide more than 5,000 game tickets to service members and their families.
