    Originally created as a ‘spirit video’ for the 2016 Army vs. Navy Football Game, "Child‘s Play" takes a fun jab at the Naval Academy and the Navy at large by claiming that ‘kids play soldier, not sailor,’ making its point by encapsulating the imagination and thrill children experience while playing soldier. The direction, filming and editing were done by Cadet Austin Lachance. All contributing personnel to this project were active duty military.

When she first shows up, she’s lost and not welcomed by her subordinates or superiors. Through hard work and dedication, she gains the respect of her crew but must still go to head to head with the tyrant that runs the department. She succeeds at taking over the department and wins his respect as well.
