In this article, the author shares his experiences regarding the football rivalry between Army and Navy of the United States, with specific reference to the U.S. war in Iraq. Over the past four years, passion for the Army-Navy rivalry has been rekindled because of the swell of patriotism sparked by the events of the terrorist attack on the U.S. on September 11, 2001 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Americans want to watch again because they know what the young men will face once they leave that playing field. Alumni from both schools have flooded Philadelphia to participate in the greatest rivalry in all of sports.
