Last week we got our first look at Navy’s uniform for this year’s Army/Navy game. Army has now unveiled its own uniform for this year’s game.
The 2022 Army-Navy Uniform tells the story of the soldiers of the 1st Armored Division during World War II. This year marks the 80th anniversary of Operation Torch and the commencement of American ground operations against Axis forces in the European theater, which included North Africa.
Operation Torch marked the 1st Armored Division’s entry into the crucible of combat. The resilience, grit, and commitment demonstrated by the soldiers ultimately resulted in the defeat of Axis forces in North Africa. In the harsh desert against a determined enemy, the members of the 1st Armored Division were forged into “Iron Soldiers” and learned the lessons that would guide them to success in subsequent operations in Italy and Western Europe.
The front of the uniform is shown above. Here’s the rear view:
As you can see, the uniform includes lots of military symbology. Here’s a breakdown of the various design elments:
