The Invocation Given At The Army/Navy Football Game Was Everything [VIDEO]

This year’s Army/Navy game should’ve been more aptly titled the “Snow Bowl!” It was a blizzard of a game with an unexpected end and started with one heck of an inspirational Invocation and followed by our National Anthem.

This year marks the 127th year that the Army and Navy meet. 127 years of the Army Black Knights from West Point meeting the U.S. Navy midshipman from Annapolis on the football field. This year the game was held in Philadelphia, the birth place of Freedom.

Captain Francis Foley Command Chaplain of the United States Navy led the Invocation.

That invocation. WOW!! In fact, let’s watch that again.

“Their uniforms differ, but in their Love of Country they are ONE TEAM for ONE FIGHT”

That right there is the epitome of what it is to SERVE this Republic and stand ready at the tip of the spear to keep us all safe.

Quite frankly, that invocation puts EVERYTHING we do into perspective. It definitely puts into perspective the idiocies of what we’ve been seeing in other areas of the sports world.

This year the Army uniforms honored the legendary 10th Mountain Division. My father served in the Mountain Training Command and let me tell you, this video honoring all the generations who’ve served in the 10th made me tear up.

If I were a betting person, I’d say that the Army’s uniforms worked in their favor during this Snow Bowl!

The Army held on for a win all the way to the very last minutes of the game.

Bennett Moehring’s last-second 48-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide to the left to give the Army Black Knights a 14-13 win over the Navy Midshipmen on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

An amazing hard fought game between two rival military academies. The rivalries between the branches of our military are legendary on multiple levels.

However, when it comes to defending our nation, those rivalries go by the wayside and they all step up to be our “shield of freedom” and wield the swords of justice.

Thank you Captain Foley for your inspirational and challenging message. We are all the better for it.

    Too bad Navy lost.

  • Too bad it was an unholy prayer. Jesus was omitted. It was all about the men and their commitment to serve the country. Prayer is about GOD, and purposely leave out HIS SON was an embarrassment to all who love HIM. I’m praying for Command Chaplain Captain Francis Foley-USNA. Apparently he does not know my LORD.
