Nicknamed the “All Americans” because they drew members from every state in the country, Army will wear an All American Patch on the front of their jersey.

The 82nd Airborne Division during World War II lead the invasion of Italy, Normandy and Holland with little to no reinforcements.

Army will attempt to break their 14-time losing streak to Navy this Saturday at 3 pm ET.
