Playing host to Tulane this afternoon, the Army Black Knights carried France's national flag out onto the field as the team entered Michie Stadium. The French flag, which was carried in addition to the American flag, was a sign of solidarity and support between America's military and France in the wake of devastating terrorist attacks yesterday in Paris.
President Obama has already contacted France's president to offer his condolences for the 128 people murdered in a sequence of coordinated attacks on the public. Many throughout the sports world, including a number of French NBA players participating in games yesterday just minutes after learning of the attacks, have expressed their sympathies and condolences while condemning the attacks.
Army also flew the French flag from tank that was present on the sidelines before the game.
The terrorist attacks in Paris, which are being credited to the terrorist group ISIS, targeted private citizens enjoying a wide range of activities on a Friday night, including a concert, restaurants, and a soccer match between France and Germany. Bombs were detonated inside the stadium as the two teams were playing.
