It's Bowl Time

Members of the Alpha Industries team headed to Annapolis, MD, for the 8th year of the Military Bowl. This year's big game was between Wake Forest and Temple. And while the play on the field was action-packed, the true heroes of the day were the Medal of Honor recipients.

Six Medal of Honor recipients, the military's highest honor, were recognized at a pre-game parade and reception, as well as, during the game itself. Each shared their inspirational story of bravery in the face of the enemy. All agreed that they were simply doing their duty for their love of country and their fellow servicemen, and, that there are thousands of acts of heroism that happen each day among our U.S. Armed Forces.

The game itself was opened by skydivers who jumped out of a plane and landed on the field with flags. The skydiver who brought in the U.S. flag was a wounded veteran who had lost both legs. It was the perfect way to start the Military Bowl. Wake Forest and Temple both played well but in the end Wake Forest took the title.
