    Check the internet for Edmonton fans singing the Star Spangled Banner Sunday night when the mike died. Notice also that many Edmonton fans removed their caps. Always loved Oh Canada and sang along whenever it was played in the United States or when we were playing in Canada. Love those...

    Robert Gates

    I had the great pleasure of hearing the USNA address by Mr. Gates at the graduating class of 2011. Can't wait to read the book. A true gentleman and a great patriot. He broke up at the end but he was great. Big cheer from the Brigade. If you get the chance see it on video it is inspiring.
