PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Military Academy at West Point and Nike today released the football uniforms Army will wear this Saturday, December 8th, in Philadelphia, PA for the 119th Army - Navy game. The uniforms honor the 1st Infantry Division and its role in Allied victory on the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War I.
For the third consecutive year, Main Gate produced the uniform reveal video with Army West Point Athletics, Nike, the United States Military Academy History Department, and Main Gate. The video takes us "into the trenches" with the 1st Infantry Division at Cantigny, France in 1918 as they make their initial assault - and victory - of the war. Written and directed by Los Angeles based director Todd Hickey, a Harrisburg, PA native, all production took place in Pennsylvania.
Nike and West Point have teamed up to develop uniforms honoring Army units and conflicts for the past three years. In 2016, the uniforms honored the All Americans of the 82nd Infantry Division in World War II, and last year paid homage to the Pando Commandos of the 10th Mountain Division in World War II.
"It was such an exceptional experience working with Main Gate Media House on the Army West Point Football uniform reveal video. Each year, we pride ourselves on telling the stories of the members of the U.S. Army who have served and do serve," explains Stephanie Menio, Senior Associate Athletic Director, Army West Point Athletics. "This video takes you right into the trenches of battle in World War I, and exceeded all expectations to honor those who have served for America's First Division over the past 100 years."
