Combat Football is a full team sport similar to other football games such as Rugby, but distinguished by its emphasis on violence. The object of the game is to get the ball into the opposing team's goal through "any means short of an actionable felony". It was invented by South Korean border guards at the DMZ to keep soldiers sharp in peacetime, and subsequently adopted by General Harry W. Brooks, Jr., commander of the United States Army Tropic Lightning division. While the men of Schofield Barracks were known to regularly play the game, very little information about the sport has appeared since a 1975 Sports Illustrated article.
