USAA unveiled a 374-pound bag of tea, a symbolic combination of the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and 124th Army-Navy Game. The tea was sourced from three veteran-owned small businesses and is being imported to the site of the USS Constitution for public display.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Robert F. Whittle, Jr., SVP, chief of staff at USAA and West Point graduate said: "Steeped in 124 years of tradition, 'America's Game' brews a familiar rivalry among foes, 250 years after the historic tea party at Boston Harbor."

The bag of tea will travel throughout the city during the Patriot Games parade on Friday, as well as the Fan Fest activation at Gillette Stadium on Friday evening. It will then be donated to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum for their historic celebration on December 16.
In addition to this event, USAA will be hosting additional events to celebrate the tradition and rivalry of the game, as well as honor the military community in New England and throughout the nation. Retired Navy Vice Admiral John Bird, SVP of Military Affairs at USAA and Naval Academy graduate said: "Each year, USAA helps to grow the game as a way to honor the cadets and midshipmen on the field and in the stands, as they are future leaders of our nation's military."
The 124th Army-Navy Game presented by USAA will be played on Saturday, December 9th 2023 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Massachusetts with kickoff scheduled for 3:00 p.m., broadcasted on CBS. For more information visit ArmyNavyGame.com.
