Hoping one day to emulate the Leap Frogs ability to do stadium demos, the USNAPT meets with that group at the Army-Navy game; won by Navy. Thanks to CAPT (ret'd) Norm Olson for interceding with Leap Frogs to allow the Academy Team leadership to arrange the meeting.
The previous week, 12/4/2010, the USNAPT met with the Black Knights of USMA West Point at Phillips AAF field in Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD for a joint USNA/USMA training exercise from the Marine Corps Reserve C-130.
