The latest recruiting catch phrase. Replacing "Be All That You Can Be (In The Army)". Seems like a strange way to describe the new kinder, gentler Army. An Army Of One, "One" is an acronym: O=Officers N=NCOs (Non-Commissioned Officers) E=Enlisted.
No example needed. Army Of One, Hooah!

Though this might surprise you Army Football is one of the most storied franchises in college football. During the 1940's turnouts at Notre Dame / Army football games in New York city were over 100,000 at the old polo grounds. They are the owners of a number of undefeated seasons and two national championships. They have produced three Heisman trophy winners. Vince Lombardi was an assistant coach at Army. Army's current coach is Bobby Ross, who took the San Diego Chargers to the Super Bowl. Notre Dame's Rockne Gymnasium has the Army Academy crest inscribed on the side as a sign of their respect for their war time service.

Army's traditional rival is Navy, whose nationally televised game is normally shown on whatever weekend the more popular teams don't happen to be playing (typically early Dec). Its a decent draw, normally played in Giants Stadium, JFK in philadelphia, or one year head scratchingly in the Rose Bowl

Modern recruiting and the requirement of a service obligation after graduation has now unfortunately reduced Army Football to a laughingstock of the CFL. (Which some recent bright spots... close losses to Alabama and Auburn in bowl games) At one point they set a record of losses in college football by going 0-13.

Have to give some credit to Army Football guys though cause they have to attend class, have to take their own tests, and have to do all the crummy stuff the other academy guys do.

I don't know how in the heck Navy football pulls off these good teams lately and good for them! But Navy seems to get the media breaks. They get Top Gun, Army gets Blackhawk down. They get Navy Seals and Army gets an ESPN movie about the Army Football cheating scandal!

Contrary to what you might have seen on MASH, nobody in the real Navy or Army give a crap about the Army / Navy game unless they are former players. Days off are given for the Super Bowl in the Army, not the Army/Navy game... what does that tell you.
Army Football sure has stunk for a long time but lets face it, they should be in the Patriot league Division 1AA.

"I need a man for a tough and dangerous mission, I want a West Point Football Player" -- Some famous WW2 general (caveat- he was an alum)

Props to Texas A&M, Notre Dame, The Citadel, Norwich, Air Force, and VMI for their fine record of military service in our nation's wars
