ARMY BEATS NAVY 15-0 AT MICHIE STADIUMSinging the Alma Mater second never felt quite like this for Army. These Black Knights accomplished something never before done in the history of their rivalry with Navy: Beating the Midshipmen at West Point.
CHINESE AMERICANS WHO SERVED IN WWII HONORED BY CONGRESSSeventy-five years after World War II ended, Congress is honoring thousands of Chinese Americans who served the United States in the war, earning citations for heroism — including the Medal of Honor — despite the discrimination that included limits on numbers allowed in the U.S.
Last week we asked whom you were pulling for in the Army vs Navy Game. 53.2% of you said Army, 34% said Navy, and 12.8% said they were indifferent.
This week we want to know: When do you do your holiday shopping?
