About the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman

The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman has been held in the Washington, D.C. area since 2008 and for the initial two years was entitled the EagleBank Bowl. The Military Bowl serves as a premier regional event benefiting the USO. With first-rate participants and events, the Military Bowl has generated broad support for the USO, positively impacting the regional economy, honoring the U.S. military and solidifying the nation’s capital as a leading college football destination.

"The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman benefitting the USO will support the excellent work of that organization, which does so much for our brave men and women in uniform, and their families," said Wes Bush, Northrop Grumman Chairman and CEO.

The sponsorship of the game has been a very special and unique opportunity for Northrop Grumman to support the work of the USO. For decades, this organization has been there to boost the morale of our servicemen and women, at home and abroad. From entertaining the troops overseas, to establishing welcome centers across the country, to reaching out to the families of service members, the USO has long demonstrated the enduring American tradition of respect and support for our armed forces.

At Northrop Grumman, we share this tradition, working positively and creatively with the USO over many years for the benefit of service members. For example, Northrop Grumman was the first supporter of the Operation USO Care Package program, and has contributed money, resources and time to the care package program and to USO centers around the world.

Through this sponsorship of the Military Bowl, Northrop Grumman has been able to expand this relationship, delivering all net proceeds from the game to the USO.
