November 10, 2014

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – The centerpiece of year-round military appreciation efforts at Penn State, the Penn State football game vs. Temple on Saturday (Nov. 15) will mark Military Appreciation Day at Beaver Stadium.

Though thousands of active duty U.S. military personnel and veterans will be in attendance at the game, the University also  wants to recognize the many more stationed around the world. Service members are encouraged to share photos of themselves in uniform, and if possible with Penn State gear, using the hashtag #PSUmilitary on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Instagram and Twitter accounts must be public, and Facebook posts must be viewable by anyone for photos to appear.

Photos will be shown during the game on the Beaver Stadium videoboards and featured at http://military.psu.edu and on Penn State social media. The game kicks off at noon and airs on ESPN2

More than 5,000 tickets have been donated to military personnel for the game through the Seats for Soldiers program. ROTC elite, active duty, Wounded Warriors and veterans will be honored for their service to our country throughout the Penn State-Temple game.
