Ladies and gentlemen, the day of the Army/Navy game has arrived.

The Army/Navy game is one of the greatest rivalries in America, and it’s about a hell of a lot more than just a football game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

For a few hours once a year, these two teams take the field to battle it out for bragging rights, but the other 364, they’re on the same side dedicated to protecting America.

Army and Navy players rarely get a shot at the NFL, but that doesn’t mean they’re not grade-A badasses. While players at Alabama, Ohio State and other traditional powers head to the NFL, the Midshipmen and Black Knights wear a different uniform after graduation and they dedicate years of their lives to keeping America safe and prosperous.

If that doesn’t make you proud as all hell to make you an American, I don’t know what to tell you.
