Q: Why wasn’t President Joe Biden at the Army-Navy game? The President (Commander in Chief) sits the first half on one side and the second half on the other side to be fair. However, there was no sign of Biden or an explanation as to why he was not present. As a former Marine, I find this a “slap in the face” for our military. Can you find out why he didn’t come?
Responnse: It has been many years since the game was restored in 1899 that the incumbent president has not attended the game.
According to WeAreTheMighty.com, a veteran-run digital publishing website, the 10 sitting presidents who attended the Army-Navy game are Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman, John Kennedy, Gerald Ford, Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Barack Obama. President-elect Donald Trump attended the 2016 game. He is the only president-elect to attend the game. Trump was also present as president.
Not all presidents who attend the games go every year of their term.
According to SBNation.com, a sports news website, Truman holds the record for most game attendances. He assisted seven times, but in most games he did not change sides. Kennedy went there in 1961 and 1962. Ford went there in 1974. No president attended the game between 1974 and 1996 when Clinton attended. Bush was present in 2001, 2004 and 2008. Obama was present in 2011. Trump was present in 2018 and 2020.
