Navy Midshipmen - 9/11 Special Uniform (Including Previous Sets)

2021: The Navy Midshipmen have unveiled special uniforms for their upcoming game this season vs Air Force Falcons. The look is inspired by the “Dress Blue A” uniform with white gloves, black cleats, red trim, and royal blue pants.

Special design elements are highlighted on the helmet, shoulders, and pants with the eagle, globe and anchor represented throughout. The front bumper of the helmet highlights the distinctive Marine Corps battle cry of “OORAH”, while the Marine Corps motto SEMPER FIDELIS, commonly abbreviated as SEMPER FI, is on the back of the helmet. The quatrefoil that dons the top of the Marine Officer barracks cover is displayed on the top of the helmet.

The pants have the famously known “blood stripe” running down each side, this element first appeared on dress blue trousers in 1798. It was rumored to represent the bloodshed of Marine during the battle of Chapultepec in 1846 but is more modernly known to honor all fallen and injured Marines. The actual uniform worn by a Marine is the only uniform within the U.S. Military designated to include this red, white, and blue color scheme.

We will get our first look at the uniform in their game against Air Force on September 11, 2021, which is the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
