"Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds, that on other days, on other fields, will bear the fruits of victory." Douglas MacArthur
General MacArthur spoke these words implying that on the sporting fields, young men and women may use those same talents on the battlefield.
The Army-Navy football game is as intense as it gets. Typically not playing for a bowl game or national championship, the players on each side battle their hearts out. Rivals on the field, teammates in battle off it. These days, most know they will see combat soon after graduation.
In this puzzle, I used the Hasbro Army and Navy football players, along with the vintage style Cadet and Midshipment that were originally released in the late 1960s. Flanked on the side are a Navy SEAL from BBI and a WWII Ranger Captain from Cotswold Collectibles.
Go Army! Beat Navy!
