When the Army Black Knights take the field against the Navy Midshipmen in their storied rivalry game Saturday, they will do so while paying tribute to American heroes.

Nike has created uniforms for Army that will honor the World War II paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division. From their helmets to their jerseys to their undershirts, the Black Knights will be honoring those who sacrificed for their country.
