To the Great Supporters and Graduates of the Air Force Academy,
The chance to play in a prestigious bowl game happens because of the terrific accomplishments of our cadets with the guidance and backing of the fine leadership of our Air Force Academy General officers and staff. The Dec 28th Washington DC, Military Bowl provides one of those rare opportunities to globally share our mission of the Air Force Academy while we play against a high scoring Toledo team on ESPN. The game will honor wounded warriors and troops who have returned from deployment. Proceeds from this game help support the USO which does so much for our service members and their families. Air Force fans, we need your help to fill the stadium with the great Falcon spirit by purchasing bowl tickets. Even if you cannot attend, the tickets you buy will be passed to Airmen who are serving our country while stationed in the DC area and other bases along the eastern seaboard. For anyone who makes a $1,000 donation, you will receive a signed Air Force jersey with your requested jersey number. (I can see it coming- you're probably going to ask if you can have the necessary shoulder pads and lightning bolt helmet so you can lace up those cleats and hustle to cover a kickoff for the Falcons, too.)
Our Dec 28th 4:30 pm EST kickoff is the only college football game during that time slot. We earned this bowl invitation because we've proven we're a school that strongly supports our bowl teams. These seniors have won 5 straight service academy games, been to 4 bowl games, won back to back Commander In Chief's Championships, and won consecutive bowl championships. It's time to go after our 3rd straight, but we need your help. As we do so often, it's time for the Falcons to pull together and rally. Support the team who fought, attacked, and persevered to keep the Commander In Chief's trophy back at the Air Force Academy for a record 18th time.
We are only two weeks from kickoff, so please click here to Purchase Tickets or call 719-472-1895 and let's make sure we have RFK Stadium full of Falcons pulling for America's future leaders. Thanks for your help and always -- Go Air Force!
