Army Uniforms Will Honor Ft. Drum’s 10th Mountain Division
The annual Army-Navy football game is coming up and Nike has unveiled a special uniform for Army that honors Fort Drum's 10th Mountain Division.
Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman spent time managing supplies for the 10 Mountain Division in his past, where according to the Baltimore Sun, he maintained the mules for the 10th Mountain Division and served as commander of the 86th Regiment's First Battalion.
The 'Climb to Glory' uniforms are white and features a shoulder patch with crossed bayonets that symbolize the infantry and the roman numeral 10 - as in the 10th Mountain Division.
Army-West Point shared this tribute to the 10th Mountain Division on their Twitter page:
"As a team, we take pride in remembering and honoring those that have come before us," Army coach Jeff Monken said. "To be aligned with such a great division of the United States Army that has fought on some of the harshest terrain in the world makes this opportunity special."
Army and Navy are scheduled to play at 3 p.m. this Saturday.
Last year was the first time Army beat Navy since 2001.
