RMKS/1. THIS YEAR'S ARMY-NAVY GAME IS SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10, 
2011, AT FEDEX FIELD IN WASHINGTON, D.C. CBS SPORTS WILL TELEVISE THE GAME AND

MARINE CORPS TEAM FOR BROADCAST DURING THE GAME.
ADDITIONALLY, THE NAVY OFFICE OF INFORMATION AND THE DEFENSE MEDIA ACTIVITY

HELP GENERATE ESPRIT DE CORPS AND AS A WAY OF HIGHLIGHTING OUR NAVAL FORCES.

2. REQUIREMENTS: ALL SPOTS MUST INCLUDE THE SUBMITTING COMMAND'S NAME AND
