The National Training Center and Fort Irwin organized and led the joint color guard for the 102nd Rose Bowl Game, Jan. 1.

A joint service military color guard and the commander of this installation supported the Rose Bowl college football game, Jan. 1.

The color guard consisted of eight servicemembers from the Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy and Army with a senior non-commissioned officer-in-charge. The detail presented the services’ flags and the colors of the nation prior to the game between the Stanford University Cardinals and the University of Iowa Hawkeyes.

National Training Center and Fort Irwin Commander Maj. Gen. Joseph Martin also supported the event as a senior active duty Army commander.

The game was attended by approximately 95,000 people and televised nationally. It was the 102nd Rose Bowl game and featured the highest ranking teams from the Pac-12 Conference and Big Ten Conference that were not selected to play in a college football playoff semifinal game.

The Cardinals crushed Iowa, 45 to 16.
