    Army Uniforms for Navy Game to Honor Famed Division

    Army will be wearing a new uniform honoring one of its famed divisions when it plays Navy this weekend in its big rivalry game.

    The uniforms are made by Nike, whose co-founder Bill Bowerman managed supplies for the 10th Mountain Division. The unit is noted for its ability to fight in harsh mountainous terrain.

    A shoulder patch on the uniform features a blue background with crossed bayonets to denote the infantry and represents the Roman numeral 10 for the unit's number. The patch is shaped like a powder keg and the word "mountain" is featured in white on a blue tab.


    The white uniforms are made from material that minimizes weight, even when soaked with sweat. The uniforms allow for greater range of motion and are cut in a way to better deal with heat.

    Navy unveiled its new uniforms in late November. The teams play Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field.
