A unique Veteran’s Day celebration took place on the deck of the USS Carl Vinson, marking the first time that an NCAA basketball game has ever taken place on the deck of an aircraft carrier. In attendance were 7,000 fans, mostly veterans, and President Obama and the First Lady. The views look spectacular, we’re wondering, however, how much the wind affected game play. The event will be known going forward as the NCAA Carrier Classic.
