(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.
