BOCA RATON, Fla. - In honor of Veterans Day, the Florida Atlantic University athletic department’s 21 intercollegiate teams along with staff members worked together to write over 250 letters to service men and women stationed overseas, while serving our country.
To support the “Mail for Soldiers” campaign, FAU Athletics partnered with Renaissance Charter School located in West Palm Beach, Fla. to involve the local community in supporting our service members.
A banner, which was signed by fans at the Nov. 3 Military Appreciation football game, also will be sent overseas as a token of thanks and appreciation.
Next up for the Owls is another Conference USA matchup on the road at Louisiana Tech, this Saturday at 3 p.m. The game will be broadcast on STADIUM and ESPN West Palm 106.3. FAU will then host the 16th Annual Shula Bowl pitting host FAU versus FIU in the final home game of the 2017 regular season. Tickets for the game are available by phone at 866-FAU-OWLS or online at fausports.com.
