NEW YORK (AP) -- The University of Maryland and University of South Carolina football teams will wear uniforms with camouflage designs during their games Nov. 14 to honor military veterans and promote the Wounded Warrior Project.
The black with tan camouflage uniforms, designed by Under Armour, will have a Wounded Warrior logo on them. Instead of players' names, the backs of the jerseys will have words such as courage, loyalty, integrity and service.
The Wounded Warrior Project acts as an advocate for injured service men and women in Washington and provides services and programs for them.
Announcements of the promotion were scheduled Tuesday on the campuses of Maryland and South Carolina.
"This is an amazing platform that will help us let others know about what we do and why honoring and empowering wounded warriors is so important," Steven Nardizzi, executive director of the Wounded Warrior Project, said in a release.
