SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING
"Part of my charter is to look out 10 and 20 years to see what we need to do, with my first priority being the missions I've got, the second priority, making sure we take care of the people, and then the third really is to look to the future in terms of how does it look, and knowing in the incredibly challenging times in which we exist that the military will be a big part of this."

A CULTURE OF ENGAGEMENT
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl
What is it?
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, kicks off at 1 p.m. EST, Saturday, Jan. 9. The game is the nation's premier high school all star football game, serving as national coming-out party for America's future college and NFL stars. Adrian Peterson, Reggie Bush, Mark Sanchez, Vince Young, and Tim Tebow all made their network television playing debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.
Last year, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew more than 32,000 fans to the game at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. Broadcast by NBC, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl trailed only the NFL Playoffs as the most-watched sporting event Jan. 3-4, 2009.
What has the Army done?
Staged by U.S. Army Accessions Command and sponsored by over a dozen national businesses and organizations, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl highlights and promotes the common elements of successful teamwork, exceptional performance by young people, and achievement at the highest level.
The national broadcast is an exceptional venue to showcase opportunities in America's Army and the nation's top high school football talent. A partnership between the nation's most popular sport and its Army, the game sends a powerful message to the American public: working hard together accomplishes the highest goals.
Why is this important for the Army?
The core mission of U.S. Army Accessions Command is providing the strength of the finest fighting force in the world. In doing so, Accessions Command provides an enormous range of opportunity to Americans who are peers of the players in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Soldiers and football players demonstrate the qualities necessary to succeed: strength, dedication, leadership and teamwork.
The game is associated with a week of activities in San Antonio that reinforces vital relationships between Army and civilian leadership, builds bonds between star athletes and Soldiers from their hometowns, and provides a connection to a national television audience with its Army.
