As the month of December signals the winding down of 2017, that doesn’t mean there’s any slowdown of free events available to the military community of veterans of all eras, currently serving military members including the Guard and Reserve, family members of those killed in action, military spouses, families and caregivers of VetTixers. December is the beginning of NCAA Bowl season and with that comes the opportunity for VetTixers to attend college bowl games with their families, friends and caregivers.

Among the various bowl games this month, if you’re going to be soaking up some sun and waves in Hawaii, before you wish everyone Mele Kalikimaka, attend the Hawaii Bowl on December 24th. If you’re in the Lone Star State, the Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl and the Texas Bowl in Houston are on the 27th and the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic is in Arlington on the 29th. Keep on checking your Vet Tix emails for notifications of additional bowl games as we continue to receive more bowl game donations. If college football isn’t your thing, check out the other great events throughout the country this month.
