Army Deconstructs Duke — And We Were There

All,

Above are few pictures from this weekend’s victory of Duke.  The Army team was in great form with a commanding lead early in the game.  After doing pushups for the third touchdown, Van and I were so glad we did not have to score again.  What a victory for the last home game.

Upcoming game is against North Texas and will be a later game.  It will air on BeIn Sports and like last time, we will have it at the Fan Club in Lakewood beginning at 1530rs on Saturday 18 Nov.

Last opportunity for a regular scheduled game at the Fan Club.  You can bet we will be there for the Armed Forces Bowl as well.

GAWP!!!

Washington State Cadets Play Army Football

On 14 October 2017, Army honored the 7th Infantry Division.  To that end, the Commanding General, 7TH Infantry Division, MG Bill Burleson (USMA class of 1988) was on the sidelines cheering his Alma Mater to a very close victory.   The Division motto, “Trust in Me,” was heard all around Puget Sound during the last minute of the game as Army dug deep to hold off a potential go ahead score.   Perhaps it was the trip to Team Army’s locker room by MG Burleson that inspired Army to find that grit for mission accomplishment.  Pictured below is MG Burleson with two Washington State Cadets: Wunmi Oyetuga (#91) and Donnell Diego (#38), both hailing from Lakewood, WA.

For scaling and raising The Colors above this wall to the City of Peking:

Bugler Calvin P. Titus Raises The Colors Above Peking’s Wall

From Wikipedia: Print(reproduction) of the original “I’ll Try Sir,” U.S. Army in Action historical painting, depicting the United States Army during the 14 August 1900 Allied Relief Expedition assault on the outer walls of Peking in China during the Boxer Rebellion. I’ll Try, Sir! Department of the Army Poster 21-73 During the fiercely opposed relief expedition to Peking in the Boxer Rebellion in 1900, when two companies of the U.S. Army’s 14th Infantry Regiment were pinned by heavy fire from the east wall of the Tartar City and the Fox Tower between abutments of the Chinese City Wall near Tung Pien Gate, volunteers were called for to attempt the first perilous ascent of the wall. Trumpeter Calvin P. Titus of E Company immediately stepped forward saying, “I’ll try, sir!” Using jagged holes in the stone wall, he succeeded in reaching the top. He was followed by the rest of his company, who climbed unarmed, and hauled up their rifles and ammunition belts by a rope made of rifle slings. As the troops ascended the wall artillery fire from Reilly’s battery set fire to the Fox Tower. In the face of continued heavy Chinese fire, the colors broke out in the August breeze as the sign that U.S. Army troops had achieved a major step in the relief of the besieged Legations. For his courageous and daring deed in being the first to climb the wall, Trumpeter Titus was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Update: From the U.S. Army Center Of Military History, a marvelous access to U.S. Army Artwork.
