Message from USAA

Proud Sponsor of America's Game

 
Maj. Gen. Josue

Welcome to America's Game

History is made on days like today.

Fifty years ago, Navy quarterback Roger Staubach led his team to a 21-15 thriller over Army in a nationally televised game that was the first to feature instant replay. When he was awarded the Heisman Trophy that year, Staubach told his fellow Midshipmen that it was a team Heisman and that he wanted to cut it up and give each teammate a piece.

When the Black Nights meet the Midshipmen for the 114th edition of America's Game, old legacies will be continued and new ones established. Still, Roger Staubach was right: This game is about more than individual achievements. These young men are playing for their fellow soldiers and sailors and not athletic glory.

In this rivalry, we'll remember the players who leave everything they have on the field for their teammates. But they'll likely leave their greatest legacy when the Midshipmen and Black Knights trade their uniforms to serve alongside one another.

USAA is proud to present the 114th Army-Navy game in honor of all who have served — including our more than 10 million members, veterans who have honorably served and family members who pass on the legacy of USAA membership, generation after generation.

Enjoy the game — and your own little piece of Army-Navy history.

Sincerely,

Maj. Gen. Josue "Joe" Robles, USA (Ret.),
USAA President and CEO
