(By JOHN KEKIS, AP Sports Writer) Rich Ellerson is sponsoring a cadet from Slovenia at West Point, and Thanksgiving only validated what Army's second-year coach has long known.p/His family came to visit. It was only their second time in the country, Ellerson said. Only the dad speaks a little bit of English. They don't know football from third base. They'd never been to West Point before, and they drive through the Thayer Gate. By the time they get to our house, they don't know anything about football, but they know we better beat Navy.

I commissioned USS Bunker Hill in 1986. One of 2 Aegis missile cruisers I commissioned during my career.

Best of luck today, guys. Hope for a good game and no injuries.

So how many of these guys go pro? Aren't they contractually obliged to serve their country when they graduate?

I can only think of Wahle as a guy that went to a military academy that's in the NFL.

Mike Wahle was actually the last guy drafted from Navy in 1998. Only 15 players have ever been drafted from Navy since 1947. Roger Staubach and Napolean McCallum, whom I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with when he was on active duty, are probably the best known of the bunch.

Caleb Campbell was briefly on the Lions roster, and Air Force's Chad Hall is on Philly's right now.

They are obligated to serve. I remember that David Robinson had to do a couple of years before he could take his spot on the San Antonio Spurs.

Good game, Army. Athough it was a fumblefest from the get-go, glad to see Army has a young QB who will be around for a couple more years. I have a feeling next year will be a very good game...

Dangit Army!!! Well the game means more to me than any other, at the end of the day these guys become one in the defense of our great nation. No neither has been a "pipeline" for NFL talent, their job is much more important. These young men are the future leaders of the most powerful military force in the world, thats why the game is so special to vets.... in the end all is forgotten on the battlefield.:patriot:
