Naval thanks

Observer Viewpoint | Wednesday, November 16, 2005

Please convey my commendation and thanks to Peter Schroeder for his Nov. 14 column in The Observer on the Navy-Notre Dame football game, “The loudest silence.” Your team, your coach, your fans, your newspaper and Peter Schroeder made an old Naval Academy graduate proud.

However, I was present 42 years ago when Navy did triumph and it was as good as beating Army. It was made even better as I was siting next to my brother-in-law, a Notre Dame graduate and diehard fan. He would not speak for an hour after the game.

We look forward to next year.
