Army-Navy Game’s Stunning National Anthem Rendition Puts Every Kneeling NFL Player To Shame

So much awesome. Go, America!

Via Daily Caller:

“President Donald Trump and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis were on hand to start off the annual Army vs. Navy game.

Army and Navy met again Saturday afternoon in the neutral site of Philadelphia to play a football game between the two oldest branches of the armed forces. This year marks the 119th time the two teams have met. A U.S. president is occasionally on hand for the national anthem and coin toss.

President Trump took the field Saturday in Philadelphia before an enormous crowd in Lincoln Financial Field. The audience was composed of Midshipmen of the Navy, West Point cadets and other assembled active duty and military veterans.

The game also featured a prayer and tribute to the late Navy veteran, former President George H.W. Bush.

The crowd roared as Trump took the field. Before the game, the student choirs of both military academies join together to sing the national anthem. You could hear a pin drop during the rendition.”

WATCH AND LISTEN:

A longer version:

Via Fox News:

“The commander in chief flew to Philadelphia for the 119th meeting in the storied rivalry between the service academies and officiated the coin toss at Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Navy called “tails,” and that’s what it was when Trump’s flipped coin landed on the turf. Navy elected to kick off.

Trump, who saw the Army-Navy contest in 2016 as president-elect, is the 10th sitting president to go to the game. President Theodore Roosevelt was the first, in 1901.

Like previous commanders in chief, Trump switched sides at halftime in a show of impartiality.

No. 22 Army (9-2) is in the AP Top 25 for the first time since 1996. The Black Knights have won seven in a row and have defeated Navy (3-9) two straight years.”

Via the U.S. Army:

“Cadets and midshipmen played the first Army-Navy football game Nov. 29, 1890 on “The Plain” at West Point. Navy had been playing organized football since 1879 and defeated the newly established Army team, 24-0.”

“Twice during World War I, in 1917 and 1918, games were canceled on orders from the War Department. And in 1928 and 1929, the academies could not reconcile player eligibility standards.

Following each game, players sing both teams’ alma maters. The winning team joins the losing team and sings facing the losing team’s students. Then the losing team joins the victors on their side of the field and sings the winner’s alma mater to its students. This act is a show of mutual respect and solidarity.”
