While walking toward the stadium yesterday, the Navy Band assembled and began their progression. I paused with my two children and we watched as they marched and performed "Anchors Away", then we walked alongside them as the drum corp rattled off marching orders. It was truly inspiring and it gave me chills.
I loved the pageantry of the game yesterday. The progression to the stadium, the procession of the Cadets onto the field, the pregame handshake, singing the alma mater post game; both humbling and inspiring.
I have profound respect and admiration for our Service men and women. Thank you to all who serve, have served, and will serve to protect us!
