The Pin for the Game

The Army Navy game was awesome!  We had a beautiful day at Lincoln Field in Philadelphia and I was thankful that Navy won especially since it was my son's Senior year at USNA.  It is the most patriotic event that I have been a part of... they describe the game as friendly strife. Seeing the flyover of the Army helis and the Navy jets is exciting.  Wathcing both the Army and the Navy parachuters land on the field is amazing.  And especially awesome is seeing somewhere around 8000 young men and women sitting side by side in uniform. The academy football games are always interesting. The tenacity of the players is different than most because of the training to focus and accomplish a mission.  I love the United States of America and I am very proud to be part of a military family!  I say a thank you to all of those who serve and have served our country!

On an artistic note I did make two pins out of polymer clay.  One for my friend who went to the game with us and one for me.  I kept them simple because I only had a few hours to get them finished.  We had fun wearing our Navy pins!

  1. Marian, I've enjoyed visiting through your older posts and find we have even more in common.... my husband went to the Academy as well (will be his 20th this year! *sigh* now I feel old!). The very first time I ever saw him was at a Navy game, in fact! :-) We just celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary - we were married in the Chapel. :-) Your Navy pin is really cool, like nothing I've ever seen.
    I hope your son enjoys the last month of school - time has really flown by, I bet. Won't be long until it's Comissioning Week! My brother is a Navy doc in Jacksonville and my Dad is retired from the Navy....we're a real Navy family!

  2. I have been to the Army Navy game before and the enthusiasm of all the people you see is great. I have seen many different kinds of Navy pins before and the one you posted looks really cool. Thanks for sharing.
