LET’S WRAP IT UP there’s no substitute for this WRAPPING PAPER
THE DESIGN OF THINGS
21ST CENTURY ARMY FOOTBALL FANDOM please go READ THIS ACCOUNT of the birth of one man’s journey as an Army Football fan. I think it’s especially cool because the journey for him started on October 7th, 1999 - a televised THURSDAY NIGHT GAME (the first ever) against Louisville - the first game I ever dressed for because I was named scout team player of the week.

RADIO GA GA
HEY ARMY EQUIPMENT, KEEP BEING AN INSPIRATION this week saw the ARMY EQUIPMENT staff took the beautiful Army Football truck down to Western Kentucky. Their mid-week pit-stop inspired this AMERICAN MUSIC PLAYLIST. Take a look and LET US KNOW what songs we may be missing.
HERITAGE PENNANT COLLECTION
SECOND SHIPMENT IS OUT I had the lovely opportunity this week to pack-up and ship out a large number of orders to places all across this wonderful country (while I listened to the American Music Playlist mentioned above). It’s such a pleasure to consider the places our pennants and camp flag will end up. Thank you.
WHAT I AM READING
THAYER MAGAZINE well, truth is…were not reading this yet because we haven’t got our hands on it (and that’s how we enjoy consuming magazine) as of writing this. But I can tell you one thing for sure…we LOVE magazines and we LOVE West Point. So any MAGAZINE ABOUT WEST POINT will be on our reading list.
