The game is a classic rivalry of cherished military athletic programs.
Trump tweeted, “Have a great game today, @USArmy and @USNavy – I will be watching.”
He added, “We love our U.S. Military. On behalf of an entire Nation, THANK YOU for your sacrifice and service!”

She grew up watching the @ArmyNavyGame with her mom and, today, Cadet Simone Askew will make history. She will become the 1st African-American woman to lead the 4,400-member Corps of Cadets onto the field ahead of the #ArmyNavyGame as first captain. pic.twitter.com/pT38wDpMsL
