There is supposed to be an M-SHORAD (Maneuver Short Range Air Defense) prototype vehicle displayed behind the GameDay crew tomorrow. It is being developed by our Project Office here in Huntsville. It is an armored Stryker vehicle with a Stinger pod, 30mm canon, 50 cal machine gun, and 2 HELLFIRE missiles on it. It’s going to be badass once it is fielded
Go Army beat Navy!

Fun fact: the Army Black Knights are the only Division I football team with the Knights mascot to earn a real national championship. Sorry, UCF.
This preview piece is from the guy who runs the Navy Rivals site. He always previews upcoming Navy games and is very fair and realistic in his views. I always learn something from his articles.

Army seniors want Navy sweep
President Trump will be the 10th sitting president to attend America’s Game
By By Dan Gelston Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA — Army is trying to win its fourth consecutive game against Navy in the 120th edition of the football game between the service academy rivals.
Army’s sensational turnaround under coach Jeff Monken has been highlighted by 10-win seasons, bowl game victories and even a spot in the national rankings.
But a win Saturday against Navy would mean a bit more — the Black Knights’ senior class would go out with a sweep of the series. Four wins in four years, a wildly successful run for a program that had lost 14 straight games to the Midshipmen.
“I think it would be a tremendous source of pride for our senior class to be able to do that,” Monken said. “This senior class has meant a lot for the program and the contributions they’ve made. I know it would mean a lot to this class to complete their career with a win over Navy and the ability to go 4-0.”
The Army-Navy series has long held its spot as the sport’s most patriotic rivalry, with pride, prestige and the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy at stake for each service academy in the 120th edition of the matchup. Lincoln Financial Field will be stuffed with Cadets and Midshipmen standing, saluting, bouncing and cheering for the entirety of what’s billed as “America’s Game” among the nearly 70,000 fans.
President Donald Trump will attend the Army-Navy game for a second straight year. Trump also was at the 2016 game as president-elect. He is the 10th sitting president to attend, a tradition that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1901. Presidents, by custom, sit on the Army side of the stadium for one half and the Navy side for the other.
“Whether he’s there or not, it’s going to be a great experience for everybody,” Army QB Kelvin Hopkins Jr. said. “Army-Navy is a special event. To have the president there, no matter what the status is or whatever is going on, it’s a treat for everybody. It’s going to be a show no matter what.”
If history holds, Trump likely will see a close call: The last four games have been decided by a total of 16 points and only once since 2010 has a team won by more than a touchdown.
Army seniors want Navy sweep
The majority of the Marine Corps during the Army Navy game:
If Navy wins the Army-Navy game, they take the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. If Army wins, then they keep the trophy by virtue of three-way tie. This season's results:
Air Force-Navy: Navy won, 34-25
Air Force-Army: Air Force won, 17-13
Army won the last three games against Navy, but this year the Black Knights are only 5-7 are 10 to 11-point underdogs against the 10-2 Midshipmen and have suffered about a 30% drop in offensive production compared to last year. If Army pulls the upset, this would be the first Army class to go undefeated against the Navy since 1996. The Navy won 14 in a row between 2002 and 2015. The past five meetings have all been settled by fewer than 9 points.
Best game in all of football, imho. Only winners in this game! Different uniforms, same team. One of the biggest days in their young careers, when they receive their coveted duty assignments. I read each one, with great admiration, and a bit on envy. Oh to be young again, and on a Submarine.
For my incredible Dad, a career naval officer, who I miss terribly each and every day. Go Navy, beat Army, just today.
