Black Knights vs. Midshipmen Football Game

There may be no game in college football as important to the two competing universities as Army-Navy, and Army Black Knights vs Navy Midshipmen tickets are highly sought after by fans, alumni, and students at both universities. The Army vs Navy game has been the embodiment of inter-service rivalry for over 100 years and has an atmosphere that is unlike any other game in college football. The game serves as a sendoff for the seniors from both West Point and Annapolis, and the students from both universities come adorned in their branches military garb.

The first Army-Navy game was played in 1890, and has been played annually since, with an exception of 10 years. The winner of the game is awarded the Thompson Trophy, as well as gains valuable points towards the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy. While every game on the Black Knights and Midshipmen’s schedule is important, the success of the season comes down to which one wins the Army-Navy game.

The National WWII Museum – 2017 international conference on WWII November 16th – 19th , 2017

Jerry Yellin will be at the National WWII Museum November 16th – 19th of November, 2017. Built on the successes of the Museum’s 70th Anniversary of World War II Conference Series, the Museum decided to break out of the mold of yearly anniversary-themed conferences. Rather than focusing on one year in the war, a particular battle or campaign, or one specific individual each year, the 2017 International Conference on World War II will address the Museum’s mission statement, and impart why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today.
