The home opener for the West Point Black Knights against the San Diego State Aztecs fell on the day before the 10th anniversary. 

The theme of the day was "A Salute to Heroes" with many police, firemen, emergency workers and military members on hand as guests. 

Among the special guest was Rudolph Giuliani, the mayor of New York City during the 9-11 attacks and was credited with having demonstrated extraordinary leadership during the days and months which followed. 

A Medal of Honor recipient was recognized during the game as were numerous soldiers recently returned from overseas service.

The game itself saw a meeting of bowl winning teams from 2010 located from about as far apart in the continental US as is possible. 

San Diego State was coming a win over Navy in the Poinsettia Bowl and Army its thrilling win over SMU in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl meet for the first time turned out to be a dandy going down to the last minute.
