GOAT BUSTER MISSION COMPLETE
Brig. Gen. Robert L. Caslen, Jr., Commandant of Cadets (Class of 1975) and Brig. Gen. Patrick Finnegan, Dean of the Academic Board (Class of 1971), celebrate after a successful Army air assault spirit mission on the Plain Nov. 27. Finnegan and Caslen, along with the Cadet First Captain, Jason Crabtree and other members of the Corps of Cadets, rescued the Black Knight mascot, Black Jack, from a naval assault force. This was just one of several spirit missions dedicated to Army/Navy week. The Black Knights will take on the Goats of Navy Dec. 1 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD.

like the year the exchange students captured the cannons and hoisted them atop the barracks---- aimed at the parade field! According to WP tour guides, what took the mids "a few hours under the cover of night" took the WP engineers "over a week to get them down"....!!!!!!!!!
A sly attempt to hide Bill the Goat from Army pranksters last night drew police attention when the mascot's handlers ran into a parked car while backing into a space at an Annapolis parking garage.
The man - decked out in head-to-toe Navy garb - and woman in charge of protecting the goat in the hours before the 108th annual Army-Navy football game, said they were trying to hide the mascot in an apartment at 1901 West complex so that it could not be stolen before the big event....
