Annual Event Benefits Military Service Members and Families
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan today participated in the 2019 Military Bowl Parade. The parade route began at the City Dock in downtown Annapolis and concluded at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, where the University of North Carolina Tar Heels will take on the Temple University Owls in the 2019 Military Bowl.
“We are proud that the Military Bowl has called Annapolis home for the past six years, giving our community the opportunity to celebrate and support our dedicated service members and their families,” said Governor Hogan. “We are brought together by the tremendous respect we hold and the incredible debt that we owe to all who have worn the flag of our nation on their arm, and all those who put themselves in harm’s way to protect the rights and freedoms that we hold so dear.”
The Military Bowl Parade has taken place annually since it first came to Annapolis in 2013. The parade is led by the iconic Budweiser Clydesdale horses and features Medal of Honor recipients, local dignitaries, youth sports teams, marching bands, and civic organizations.
Each year, the Military Bowl generates over $100,000 for the United Service Organizations and also benefits Patriot Point, the Military Bowl Foundation’s recreational retreat on Maryland’s Eastern Shore that serves ill and injured service members.
