The annual Army-Navy game is a proud American tradition often attended by U.S. Presidents ever since Theodore Roosevelt first attended a snow-filled event in 1901. George W. Bush attended three. President Obama even made it to one, in 2011.
The 117th annual game, however, saw the first president-elect on record in attendance when Donald Trump and his retinue made their way inside the box of Republican adviser and West Point graduate David Urban during the first quarter.
As a show of support for our Armed Forces, I will be going to The Army-Navy Game today. Looking forward to it, should be fun!
