“The Military Bowl is a favorite event among the armed forces community, and we are honored to partner with them to bring Medal of Honor Recipients to show their support and enjoy the game,” said David Seymore, senior vice president – Intergrated Operations at American Airlines and a graduated of the United States Military Academy at West Point.
