Army-Navy Game: Chick-Fil-A’s Football Restaurant
Chick-Fil-A created what they called a “pop-up restaurant” to bring military football fans together even if they couldn’t purchase a ticket to actually be at the Army-Navy game. The event was held in Philadelphia, and Chick-fil-A hosted active duty military, veterans and their families. It was a hit.
Chick-fil-A’s press release stated,
Chick-fil-A is proud to support and honor the men and women in the military and their families who have served, are serving, and will serve our country.
The Chick-fil-A pop-up restaurant is designed to bring fans of rival football teams together by creating a shared table. Members of the military will attend the event to participate in spirited competition, a shared meal and a watch party.
Other activities include a card writing station to show military appreciation, giveaways, food and much more. Chick-fil-A will also be flying in Army and Navy veterans nominated by local franchise Operators located across the country to attend the pre-game ceremonies and the game.
Chick-fil-A is owned by WWII veteran Truett Cathy. They are hated by every left winger in America, primarily because they are also Christian.. But normal people love their food, and a work ethic that proves they are the opposite of everything held dear by the commie leftists. They are so hated, that New York City specifically said they didn’t want them in their city and called for a boycott. (True story, you can read it here.)
They wanted to do something or our veterans, our military, and the families that support them. They made it happen.
Dare you to watch this without getting a little teary eye-ed: a commercial about the military that was aired during the game.
It takes a different kind of kid to commit to protecting our country.

The traditional “prisoner exchange” at the start of the game:
Before the start of the @ArmyNavyGame, the exchange students spending the semester at the Naval Academy and West Point were traded back to their academy during the prisoner exchange. Read more about it here: https://t.co/RbjV49x1vb pic.twitter.com/1ixmZKuvAi

In the matchup between the Navy Midshipmen and the Army Black Knights, the Army pulled off another win. But those who watched it together at Chick Fil-A’s “shared table” may have had the best seats of all.
