On Friday, November 14 at the Temple University Military Appreciation Game, Temple Athletics will dedicate "One Empty Seat" to honor the POWs and MIAs at the Liacoraus Center. The "One Empty Chair" serves as an instant reminder of all the sacrifices made for "our country" by the nearly 90,000 Americans who have gone missing or become prisoners of war while serving their country in the U.S. military between World War II and today's conflicts in the Middle East. Temple University wants the POW-MIA servicemembers and their family members to know that "they have not been forgotten".



Temple University Diamond Band Salutes All Who Have Served

On Saturday, November 29 at the Temple Owls Football game against Cincinnati at the Lincoln Financial Field, the Temple University Diamond Band will play the Armed Services medley (which includes the theme song for each military branch) honoring all who have served, as a special tribute to Temple Military Appreciation Month.

Directed by Matthew Brunner, the Temple University Diamond Marching Band presents exciting and innovative contemporary shows during the fall semester. The Marching Band performs a traditional pre-game show with varied half-time shows throughout the season; the DMB performs a different half-time show for each home game. In addition to six hours of rehersal per week, activities are arranged to be compatible with student schedules. The "Pride of the Cherry and White" Marching Band performs at all home games and also travels to select away games and to Bowl Games.

The Diamond Marching Bands's large and diverse membership provides exciting opportunities for instrumentalists, color guard performers, and twirlers. GO TEMPLE DIAMOND MARCHING BAND!
